Re: Another thing about the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 II...

The zoom setting locks when you remove the lens! I haven't seen this behavior before in a lens. Any other MFT lenses do this? I have to remember to set the lens at 75mm for compact storage before removing it from the body. There is absolutely no play in the zoom lens when removed from the camera. It is locked down solid. If this is easy to do for manufacturers, probably all zooms should work this way. Saves wear and tear on the mechanism anyhow.

I don't think that's the case. However, the zoom ring extends all the way back to the last 5mm or so of the barrel. Try holding it right by the back end of the lens, near the flange.
