    I pulled my pl45 macro out of the bag last night, mounted it on the GH3, and it will not focus at all, manual or auto. I tried the usual tricks, battery out, remounting, etc. The stabilization is working. I did a internet search and found one other post about the same issue, but it resolved itself. This has not.

    Has anyone else had this issue?? I last use the lens about a month ago without issue.

    I tried it with the switch in both positions, with no effect. Maybe the switch is the issue, though.
