I would certainly return it to be checked out. I've had this lens for a few years and used in all sorts of conditions, even dropping it into a muddy puddle on one occasion, and it's never let me down.

The 200mm is bundled with a 1.4x converter with a 2x as an optional accessory. It'll be interesting to see how close the 1.4x combination comes to the 300mm Olympus lens in performance
