Re: Olympus kit lens question

I still own both versions of that lens. The black one is the "L" model and came with my EPL1 in 2010. The silver one is is the R model, and came with my EPM1.

Both work the same way. In "MF" mode, spinning the front focus rings kicks the display into 10X mode and I can focus. In "SAF-MF" mode, the camera still focuses automatically, and spinning the ring kicks it into MF mode with the 10X screen.

Congrats on the EPL1. Still a useable camera in 2021. The IS is broken on mine. I've read about how to fix it, but I lose too many screws these days.
