17mm lens on E-M1 issue
Jul 30, 2014

I've had my E-M1 for about 7 months now and recent bought the Oly 17mm lens for it. Recently I tried using manual focus and noticed the camera didn't zoom in to help with focus confirmation. Trying my other 3 lenses (2 Oly, 1 Panasonic), they all zoom when the focus ring is turned in manual mode. It appears as though the manual focus is happening, just no zoom. I'm guessing this could be a defect in the lens copy I have. Anyone else have this lens/camera combo that could confirm what I'm seeing or what I'm expecting?  Thanks.
