Olympus omd em5 no longer recognizes lenses
Mar 4, 2014

Several lenses no longer work with my om-d em-5.  I had sent it out for reapir to clean the sensor, and it was returned in what seemed like good condition.  Initially, I used my 17mm lens and it worked fine. But when I switched to the zoom lens that came with the camera, it showed only a blank screen (although the menu worked). Three other lenses produced the same result. But three others worked fine.  A call to the Oly repair number stumped the first tech, and he promised to have a higher ranking tech call back.

I tried to update the firmware, but apparently my camera is up to date since the repair service updated the camera as part of the service.

Any ideas?
