Default Zoom focus with Olympus e 450

I have an Olympus e 459 with a 40-150 zoom. I can't get this to focus even though I can with the standard lens.

What do I need to do? I turn the focus ring but no go.

Hi: be sure to check, and thoroughly clean, the metal contact points on both the camera and the lens. And make sure when you mount it on the camera that you are not accidently pushing in on the lens release button, as that could allow the lens to go slightly past the lock point and not mount at the correct point.

Also, perhaps we need a little more clarification: What is your camera settings? --do you have your camera set on either S-AF +M or C-AF+M and the camera does focus both automatically and manually with another lens? But it will not focus either automatically or manually with just the 40-150?

In manual mode or auto mode.
