Why doesn't my new Oly 12-40mm autofocus?

As much as I enjoy the MF clutch ring I think more users are surprised by it...

It was a deciding factor in my decision over the Pany 12-35 f/2.8 as well as the Oly correction of CA.  It seems the  OP is on to something though a big sticky note or extra band to prevent inadvertent use or worse return of functioning merchandise under defective pretenses.  I remember this happening what the 17 f/1.8 came out, and less with the 12/2.0 but it was a lesser sold unit I think.

Cannot wait for the next pro lens so we can see the slew of these again.

sorry this may have been in bad taste but this has been a weekly thread here regarding defective issues.  We either need to go back to printed manuals so folks can quickly ascertain the issue or big stamps like silica gel desiccant packets to save folks from themselves.

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.
