    Default E-5 won't let my 12-60swd f-stop come down to 2.8

    Hi everyone, wondering if anyone can help me out? I have an E-5 with only about 7,000 shutters that is only letting the f-stop on my 12-60swd and my 50-200swd come down to 3.2. Can anyone offer any help??

    Thanks,

    Steve

    This is going to sound stupid, but have you double checked the mode the body's in?

    Also, it is a good idea to thoroughly clean the contacts on both the camera and the lens.

    Another stupid question: This is at the wide end of the lens, that is 12mm and 50mm, further out the f-stop is lower.

    LOL As if none of us have ever made mistakes with our settings.
