I had this with my 70-300mm, I cleaned the contacts on the lens and made sure the pins on the camera depressed correctly and the problem disappeared, hope yours is as simple as that.

Do you have a protective filter fitted?

Try this first, if it doesn't work then it's probably a case of sending it to Olympus for a service.

Hi everyone!

This is a long shot, but doesn't the E-5 have a sort of focussing adjustment for individual lenses? I think my new E-30 has it. It might be worth checking if this has been altered in any way from standard for this particular lens. You might also be able to re-calibrate the lens yourself rather than send it back to olympus.

Cheers,

Ralph.
