Re: Autofocus of 12-60mm on E-3 stopped working

I think the SWD may have failed.  It happened on mine.  It was making unusually odd noise during focus.  I sent it to Oly and they returned it to me stating that was normal with no examination having been done.  I called and talked to a customer service agent and she told me to return it.  However I went to a local dealer and compared mine to a new one...and they both did make a "jittering" sound.  Mine was much louder however.

I called the Oly agent back and told her.  She asked my to continue using it if it wasn't too annoying and if it didn't get quieter to send it back.  A month later it simply quit working.  I sent it back to them and they replaced the SWD and I've had no further problems.  This was a newly purchased "refurb" and by the time the lens stopped working it was out of the 90 day warranty period.  However they did not charge me for the repair.
