Spares for E5

I was boxing up my E5 to send to Ffordes intending to change it for another mFT lens. Unfortunately as I handled it the battery cover the latch broke. I have searched the web for a replacement but I can only find ones from America which will take over a week to arrive, are very expensive and risky from a tax point of view. Luton Cameras appear to have discontinued this item. Does anyone know of any other UK stockist who might help

Many thanks in advance.


Roger

Panic over. I have sourced the part for the E5 and it is now in working order.

Re: Spares for E5

As a matter of interest, from where did you source the part?

Surprisingly at Luton Cameras. I had tried their website the day before and it was marked "withdrawn - no stock" but I decided to try the effect of a phone call, and somebody went into the store to do a physical check and came back to report that they had several. I asked them to check it was the right one and it certainly fits and works nicely. It was also way cheaper than importing one.
