Olympus 8mm fisheye 3.5 4/3

Hi

having problems with this fisheye on my E3

It appears to focus with close up objects, but anything in the distance it will not focus- if i switch to manual focus it sometimes will not focus on distant objects..

It is my first fisheye, so I could be doing something wrong here If not, anyone got an idea on how or where could get it repaired , or what might be wrong with it?

As it's of very short focal length, I would think that anything over 250mm would be in focus, especially with an aperture of (say) f8.

Sounds like a trip to Olympus is needed.

Try doing a “two button” reset, with the lens attached.
