    Default Focus problems with 90-250mm f2.8

    Hello all,

    I own the Olympus 90-250mm f2.8. The autofocus is not working properly at all three of the focal settings (near, middle and and far) - whirring a little and not locking on sharp focus... manual focus almost doesn't work at all. Im using an E5 which I recently got serviced. The lens worked fine before sending the E5 away...

    For such a beautiful lens, I'm asking if anyone knows of a solution to this? Is it something inside the E5 that needs to be reset or is it really only something Olympus technicians can fix? Olympus probably don't repair these older lenses anymore leaving me with a little bit of a problem.

    Any advice would be incredibly welcome.

    ..."The lens worked fine before sending the E5 away..." That sounds like a strong clue that it may be caused by the E-5. Is there anyway you could borrow a 4/3 body and see if the lens works on it? Good luck.

    Thanks so much for your reply. I'll definitely try another 4/3 body. Regards. W

    The last time I checked 2019 Olympus still repairs the 90-250, Big Tuna 300, 14-35 and the Baby Tuna 150mm.

    There's a Olympus Service Center on Long Island NY. Have you tried to contact them without going through Olympus OM Solutions?
