    Has any one else noticed this oddity: when you select AFC (continuous autofocus) on the dial with the 20mm mounted, that the camera tells you you have to be in AFS mode. Yet, if the camera is in iA mode, it appears to be using AFC?

    On mt EPL1, if I choose AFC with the Panny 20mm, then the entire camera freezes up. No buttons are responsive. I have to reset it by popping the battery out, and resinserting it.
