The 12-60 twists in two!

One dead lense I suspect.

Just back from a great trip in the Himalayas, except..

The lense hood was getting harder & harder to remove at altitude. The weak point, as I found out, is the front element! The three plastic pins shown have broken.

FWIW the AF at the 60mm end doesn't work to well above 4000 metres.  Any other focal length & it was fine. The E5 & the PL14-150mm didn't miss a beat.

So it's off to Olympus Sydney soon. I'm not optimistic.

Regards
