View Full Version : M. Zuiko 60m overrides Lens reset?

I have switched Lens reset (return to infinity on power down) to off on my EM5 to save on battery power. However this seems to be overridden by the 60mm Macro! Is this an intentional function and for what reason?

That's funny! I have Lens Reset set to ON, yet my 45mm ignores it and remains at the focus point it was on when I switch off!

I suspect it's because the lens has the "focus limiter" functions built in. This is probably achieved by firmware in the lens body which ignores or overides some commands from the body.
