25mm 1.4 on E-PL2: bands of color/darkness on screen
Nov 17, 2012


I've been running the 25mm 1.4 through its paces on my E-PL2, and tonight I noticed some bands of color/darkness on the screen:

It wasn't exceedingly bright in the room at the time, just a lamp + overhead light. This was much more noticeable in person, and mostly disappeared when aiming at a darker object.

The thing that is puzzling me is that earlier I heard some rattlesnake noises from the lens while pointing it at the bright sky & mountains - expected. But while I had these bands - no rattlesnaking, not even when I pointed a bright flashlight at the camera.

Is this normal behavior?
