OMD EM5 MKII Battery door

Just received my used EM5 MKII and when I opened the battery door to insert the battery, the lock lever snapped in two. Anyone else have this issue

Re: OMD EM5 MKII Battery door

Gosh, that must be a disappointment.

Must be a similar mechanism to all the oly's, but never had nor heard of that problem. Sorry to hear that. Is it usable?

Yes I can lock and unlock the battery door but it's a bit fiddly

How annoying - A quick Google gives you the official part numbers from the USA Olympus site and a link to buy a new one from the UK here...

Camera Jungle have posted me a replacement battery door and a quick google search shows its a doddle to fit. So all is well.
