    Hi all,

    Was traveling in north Africa with my gx1 and trusty oly 12m. Unfortunately I encountered a bit too much sand in the desert and there are fine sand particles stuck inside focus ring. Nothing major but I can now hear the lens focus (especially in video):(

    Any suggestions?

    I'd probably send it to get serviced. Don't mention the sand, just mention the noise. If it's still under warranty you can hopefully get it fixed.
