Re: Olympus UK / Europen warranty period - worth to extend?

There have been problems with the rear screen on early E-M5s (where the fastening screws had been overtightened on assembly eventually causing cracks in the screen surround) and the E-M1 Mk 1 has had...

Re: Prime M43 Lens?

The Samyang is widely regarded as giving outstanding results, and has a much faster aperture than the Olympus bodycap lens. It's manual focus, but with its short focal length that's almost irrelevant...

It's only three and a bit years old, so isn't it still under warranty? (Most of us seem to have a three year warranty, with an option to extend it.) I'd suggest contacting Olympus anyway to see if...
