Question about Cameras
I was using my macro lens. All of a sudden it didn't focus. I swapped out the battery and it still didn't focus. I noticed that the lens is extended and I don't know how to un-extend it. Seems to be stuck. I'm using an Olympus E-500 camera and don't know all the ins and outs of it; so maybe I accidentally set something I didn't mean to. Anyway, it seems to be stuck and I don't know what to do about it. The camera functions correctly with a different lens. Can someone help?

Maybe its something you're not doing, LOL.
Look on the side of the lens. Most of the 70-300 macros have a slide switch. My Tamron, for instance, needs to be zoomed out to 300, then slide the switch to Macro and its ok. Look for the slide switch. You might also notice lines of a different color to denote Macro.
Some days it too tough to be smarter than the lens,
