12-60 Playing up
Aug 22, 2009

I used my 12-60 on the e-30 and about every 5th photo was totally blown out. I thought it was my camera so changed to my e-510. The same thing happened...it would take a few good photos and then start blowing them out totally.

I then realized it must be the lens. I had it on ISO 200 and f14 at the time and with the settings the same I would have a good photo and a blown out one of the same scene.

I thought it had stopped as I took about twenty shots one after the other in the back garden to test it. I took it out for a day trip and it started again.

Has anyone ever seen this problem and what could it be.....a major problem or a minor one?
