I also noted that the E-M5 took longer to boot up with the Sigma lenses mounted; @ first I thought a camera fault but as soon as I went back to other lenses it booted up right away. 

The Sigma 30mm f/2.8 has a startup delay of about three seconds.  It is much more than other Micro Four Thirds lenses.  Even the Lumix X 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 collapsible zoom lens only takes two seconds before it extends and is ready for shooting.

Still, the Sigma 30mm f/2.8 is a brilliant lens.  My review here:

There is a firmware update for the startup delay via Panasonic:

scroll half a page to the big blue box.

I don`t know how to do this with Olycams....But I did it with my G2 and Sigma 30mm, and it became much faster in startup...
