    I bought a new PL 25/1.4 today and am using it on an E-M10. The lens makes an audible click whenever AF is confirmed and the focus motor stops. As far as I can tell, this is not aperture rattlesnaking as the aperture blades don't move. Does anyone else's 25 do this? I've only seen this mentioned in one Flickr thread. Thanks

    Mine makes a small click sound also. The lens has a very snappy AF motor and probably a less than ideal control profile with Olympus bodies, which generates the sound when the AF motor starts and stops. Don't worry about it.
