Took a few shots and the screen went black and the message "Please check status of lens" popped up in big white letters! New one to me. I checked, the 12-100mm was still attached to the EM1 MK2 and the message disappeared! Anyone else seen this?

Yep - Can't remember exactly how I cleared it but think I turned off, took the lens off, put it back, 'rebooted' and told the message to go away:)

The message you saw is mentioned as the last item on page 164 of the E-M1 Mkii User Manual (together with the recommended corrective action).
