Re: Unlocked lens gives illusion of dead camera!

Not a bug. The camera doesn't think it has a lens attached, and so it doesn't read the sensor.

Lots of us put old MF lenses on our E-M5 using a dumb adapter and the camera doesn't think it has a lens attached. It works fine. It doesn't play dead like in the case mentioned. The E-M5 should report some sort of error message if it thinks something is amiss rather than just silently playing dead.

The difference is that an adapter fully engages the lens lock. In the described case, the lens isn't locked. If you fail to fully engage an adapter, you'll likely get the same behavior.
