If you have never done it before, better not try.
The lens is a very precise set of lenses, all adjusted to the exact distance at the factory.
Taking apart such a lens will more than likely cause more problems than you can imagine. First off, you need special wrenches in able to remove the retainers for each lens.

Best left to a professional.
Possibly you could sell the lens on someplace such as Ebay and find youself a good one like it at a pretty good price.

My pl1 camera has blurred pictures but when lens taken out, its ok.


Are you using an auto-focus m4/3 lens? I have about 20 lenses for this camera and only 1 of them is an auto-focus m4/3 lens. I have an adapter so I can use my 4/3 lenses on it in auto-focus mode along with other various mounts (including cctv) that do not support auto-focus. So if you are using a non-auto-focus lens, you will need to manually focus the pictures.
If you are certain it is an auto-focus lens, are you sure you have it set to auto-focus?
What settings do you have your camera set to (aperature mostly is what I'd like to know)? Try adjusting your aperature to be small (to increase your DOF).
Also what lens are you using and what is your focal distance? It could be your lens has a larger or shallower focal distance than what you are trying to achieve (like a macro lens doesn't work that great for landscape photography or a telephoto lens doesn't work great for macro photography).
Last thought: is your lens or sensor dirty? A dirty lens can cause focusing issues if it is REALLY dirty and a dirty sensor can too (sensor is a bigger pain to clean. I strongly recommend taking it to the pros as they scratch really easily). Dirty lenses can be cleaned with a blower and a lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol if those 2 things don't clear it out.

Tip

Digital Cameras


Since I have been a expert on Fix ya, I have seen many people write about the auto-focus of the digital zoom lens. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you in the future.

The Right Lens for the Job
There is another reason for using zoom lenses, especially when you are taking pictures of people. Lenses can alter the appearance of your subject, and wide angle lenses can distort people’s faces – especially if you are taking our advice and getting in close. So, by all means, get close, but if you are doing a portrait, use your zoom as well. Longer lenses are more complimentary and should be used even if you are actually physically close to your subject

What Brand is your SLR?
This is important because every mounting brace for all the camera's are different for example, and Nikon will not fight on a Canon, Canon will not fit on a Pentax and so forth. Some may fit, but the auto focus will not work. So make sure you know your brand and model number before just going out and buying a lens for your camera.

Here are six steps to help you buy the best lens for your money and the camera.
  1. Determine the focal length you'll need
  2. Decide if you want a prime or zoom lens
  3. Select a maximum aperture
  4. Choose between first or third party lenses
  5. Evaluate any extra features
  6. Read reviews and narrow your options

When turning on the camera the lense comes out and then goes right back in. New battery and memory card


Hi! Try putting your camera down on flat surface with lens facing up. Look at the outer ring of your lens and locate the small round lens located at 11 o'clock. Clean this with a que tip and see if solves your problem. This little lens works with cameras auto focus and if dirty will cause your problem. Good luck!

You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.

How to use a manual zoom lens with Evolt 510


By manual zoom lens I am assuming you mean a film camera lens. If it is one of our OM 1 or 2 lenses they can be used on our Olympus digital SLR camera but you will need to purchase an MF-OM1 converter to be able to adapt those lenses to fit on our digital SLR camera. Then you will only be able to shoot using those lens in manual focus mode. Auto focus mode will not be available.

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
