I am getting a "Lens attachment Filed" warning when I put it on my Panasonic G85. In Manual Focus Mode the screen is black and as soon as I switch to Autofocus I get the Lens attachment Failed warning.

Any Ideas?

Similar to a recent discussion on Laowa 50 f/2.8 macro (has electronic communication) which has compatibility issue on Panny bodies and required a firmware update by Laowa.

I had similar issue on a pair of AF extension tubes on 45~200. When I mounted either the 16mm or 10mm tube on 45~200, it is perfectly fine. When stacked the 2 extension tubes together, G1 prompted the same error message. It is fine to stack both tubes on another Panny lenses, or mounted on another bodies.

Only solution, to mask the contact pins making it a dummy lens/adapter. Otherwise, need a firmware update for the adapter.
