Mildly is not banging. I had never dust in the mf mechanism of any other lens. I do nothing else with this lens as with every other lens I had during the last 25 years. It is easily the worst build lens I ever had in my hand.

This is certainly disturbing; so the other posts suggest there is a lot of variance in Olympus products.

My Panasonic 14-45 zoom fell nearly 2 m into a rubble of stones and leaves; it had some plastic chipped off, but is still working nicely and smoothly. However, this is just one single experience. - Peter
