50-200SWD Problem

I have just usd the lens yesterday and today, not used it for a few weeks.

I started to notice that the lens was struggling to focus

E3 works fine with the 12-60 so I know it is not the body.

When the 50-200 is trying to focus you can hear a clicking sound, like the drive train has not engaged correctly, you can focus it manually and get focus conformation, just.

The lens has not been dropped but anybody any idea or is it going to have to go to Olympus. It was a brand new lens but not bought from a shop so not sure what to do.

Kit: Olympus OM4, OMD E5 MkII And some other junk to make it all work.
