E-PL5 froze up

I have been using my E-PL5 with my 17mm f1.8 Olympus lens without any problems for the past 6 weeks. Today while shooting the viewfinder (VF-2) turned blank spontaneously when I pressed the shutter release and stayed blank. Even though I was using Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f4 and about 1/125 shutter speed, the LCD showed a shutter speed of 1/2000. There was no response when I pushed the shutter release again, and the screen remained blank (maybe the shutter was open?). When I turned the camera off and then on again all was well. It seems to be working fine again. Any ideas what caused the problem? Is it the camera or the lens causing the problem?
