    Did you check the manual focus ring on the lens ?
    That will prevent AF ...

    Kind regards.

    Tricky, got fooled as well once!
    The focus ring can be pushed forward and backward.
    AF works in forward position.
    With best regards, K-H.

    I got caught out when the EM-5 and 12-50 mm first came out,
    but IIRC that might have been a clutch for the zoom, not the focus.

    So when I had had my first 'Oh-Oh' moment of despair with my 12-40 mm focus not working, something clicked in my brain from 2.5 years ago and all was well.

    I got fooled with it as well - and after the camera had got really wet.
    Rite of Passage I guess

    Just this guy you know
