I have been using the Olympus OM-D with the Panasonic 12-35 mm Lumix G (f2.8) and Panasonic 35-100mm (f2.8) lenses for the last 2 months. ll has been going well except that the focus sped has seemed slow.

2 days ago I updated the Olympus firmware to version 1.5 - primarily as the focussing speed was slow with my Pana lenses and this was meant to help address this issue.

Unfortunately the Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8mm lense now doens't work.

My other Panasonic (and my Olympus lenses) are working fine, so I am thinking it is a lense software issue to do with the update (and Olympus has suggested this).

Panasonic are looking into it, however has anyone else had this problem with this lense/update and did you find a solution?

Have you updated the 12-35mm firmware to 1.1 via the Oly updater? My 12-55mm has been working fine on my OM-D before and since the OM-D 1.5 update. Yesterday I braved the lens update, and all OK (though it took quite a while). If the Oly updater recognizes the 12-35mm, it would be worth trying the 1.1 lens update.
