I bought my E-3, 12-60, 50-200SWD package in March 2009. Been getting to know this gear and am still very ameteur status but making progress. Today had what seems a major problem...while taking shot during daylight hours at basic settings w/ 12-60 attached, the image in the viewfinder suddenly flared brighter, then darkened considerably. Also, the shutter seemed to lag and autofocus went haywire. Now the image is very dark through the viewfinder. No ability to take any more shots and autofocus does not work. Reset back to factory, changed battery, etc. all w/out any change. Put a 40-150 lense on and viewfinder is bright again, but very long delay in shutter when take shot and still no autofocus. Any idea what has happened to my baby?
Thanks for any responses, Ralph.
