Exclamation E-M10 Mk II production pause!

It seems Olympus needs to hold off on the production briefly of the E-M10 Mk II because of a manufacturing issue. This was found on the Japan site only & is google translated.

This time, in the digital single-lens camera "OM-D E-M10 Mark II", in the case of installing a replacement lens of plastic mount on the camera body, we find that there are things the lock is easy to come off.
Now, so we have to consider the improvement, we will meanwhile, was temporarily suspended sales.

Regarding already your response to this was customers who received your purchase, because the very trouble .... was a dedicated window below, we would appreciate your inquiry.

That I apologize the inconvenience to our customers, and apologize.

Maybe further announcements will follow from our local Olympus sites, but it is good this issue was discovered & dealt with before a lot of production units were sold, creating an expensive recall/repair in the future.

Good to nip this in the bud rather than having a recall.
