I've changed about 30 Olympus lenses and not once have I had to calibrate anything. Software won't fix it, there isn't any such program and never will be. If you use the Optical viewfinder to get focus it's possible you've put that back together with the teeth missing the guides. Are you sure you replaced that tiny piece of glass (filter) between the lens and the CCD. Is the CCD locked on correctly? What is it you're using as a reference for focus? If it's the LCD and it's OK then the lens etc must be OK and the fault lies after the LCD. It certainly sounds like you missed something unless the second lens is faulty as well. As for not being able to fix a faulty lens it's definitely possible, just bloody time consuming. BMW

Why wont my Olympus zuiko 300mm lens zoom to max length?

Most camera's can't focus when the aperture number is above 5,6. Although your tele zoom starts at 4,8, it reaches the 5,6 at about 150 mm. So from there and up it can't auto focus. You still should be able to focus manually, but for wild life or sports pictures, it is useless.

IESP auto focus

iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-8080 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-8080 Wide Zoom, the AF target mark automatically moves to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
