sound like it is not registering with the contacts in the camera.
When you attach the lens DO NOT hold the lens release button down.
Attach the lens, twist and listen for the click to say lens is properly located.
There is a pin coming from the lens body that drops into a slot in the lens body when it is aligned correctly. This pin operates a switch in the camera body, telling it the lens is attached correctly, hence your message.....:smile:

ALL m43 lens's will work with ALL m43 bodies
