E-M5 remote shutter release problem?
Jul 26, 2012

I picked up a clone off Ebay for $3 shipped & it works exactly as expected. However, when I mount any of my 4/3rds lenses, it will only lock focus-it will not trip the shutter. To be more specific, if I have the 12-50 lens attached & half-press the remote shutter button, it will lock focus. When I press the remote button all the way in, it will trip the shutter. If I have one of my 4/3rds lenses attached (12-60, 50-200, etc.), it will lock focus with a half-press, albeit slowly. If I continue with a full press, it will do absolutely nothing.

Has anyone else run across this?
