Re: 9-18mm problem?

That is a puzzler.  No issues with a GH1 GF1 or GX1 and this lens.  Does this happen in daylight as well as indoor light?  Have you tried this with every lens you have, in identical settings, immediately after you see the issue with the 9-18?  Does turning the camera on and off have any effect?  Does rotating the lens (without pressing the release button) have any effect (looking for a loose contact)  Have you examined all of the contacts to see if they are free of debris or some sort of coating that might give you a slightly weak contact?  Is the firmware on the body and the lens up to date?  The white balance issue seems to be the most plausible, but that is why you do the first test I mentioned.

Frankly I don't think it is any of these things, but it is worth a try.

Please report back.
