Re: Olympus Zuiko MKI 14-54mm F/2.8-3.5 lens question

I had an issue with my 35mm Macro.

First I had a clicking sound. After some days usage the focus mechanism blocked at half position and the lens was only usable from 5-40cm focus distance.
I took a look through the rear opening (fortunately the 35mm has no lens at the rear opening!) and saw the reason: the electrical conducting stripe for the aperture drive was folding inwards into the wrong direction and blocked the focus drive mechanism.
I took a small woodden stick and snatched it back outwards.
Since then the lens isworks again and the clicking is completely gone.
