Alan Thompson on mu-43.com forum is reporting that his PEN-F returned from Olympus repair with the same issue.

Yes there is a problem with firmware 2. My Pen f was sent to Portugal to the factory for exactly this problem. It came back and still has the same problem. I spoke to Olympus yesterday who now agree there is a problem with firmware 2. A temporary solution they gave me over the phone is as follows. Go to shooting menu 1 and reset with a full reset not a basic one. Then go to cogs menu k and make sure quick sleep mode is turned off. This seems to have cleared the problem. I assume they will eventually bring out an update to the firmware.

I have done some shooting in the past days and this seems to have solved the issue... has someone else tried it?

Yes...on two Pen f's...seems to work.
