Lumix 14mm f2.5 noise on an Olympus E-pm1
Aug 21, 2013

Hi All, I've recently bought a mint E-pm1 for £159 on ebay and am very happy with it having owned an E-510 and E-pl1 before. This morning I unboxed a new 14mm lumix lens and found that it makes a loud aperture noise, see the video below. What do you all think, is it a worthwhile compromise? It seems much louder than I anticipated..

I will investigate if and how to upgrade the firmwares in case this helps..

I'm adding a link to the video as the embedding doesn't seem to work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEw45x1OgAs
