Default E-M1 Mk II stuck in manual focus

Out of the blue, my camera is stuck in manual focus when the M. Zuiko 40-150 f/2.8 lens is attached. The problem disappears when I attach a different lens.


I have cleaned the contacts on both the lend and the camera body.


Any suggestions?

Are there any selector rings or switches on the lens which could have gotten bumped? Can you try the lens on another camera?

I have had a similar problem on a Pentax with a Tamron lens, where the control chip in the lens was bad.

Just guessing, really.

The problem turned out to be user error. I forgot about the lens' focus clutch.

Sometimes it's just the simple things that we overlook. Can't remember all the times it has happened to me.
