Re: Lens service advice/experience?

I have just checked and I have no such markings on my lens hood, so it seems that they have indeed made some changes. Interesting.

I am more than happy to actively encourage fellow Olympus Europe users to consider the Pro Service plans as a relatively low cost means of ensuring that your camera/lens combo is kept to its best. So a big thumbs up so far from me!
Unless its changed from when they announced the scheme, the phrase "the scheme also covers my E-M1 MkII plus other pro lenses" is a bit misleading. When the scheme was launched it "covered the E-M1 and any other PRO lenses you had"; in other words you had to have an E-M1. I don't and I don't want one. But I wouldn't mind a scheme to cover my PRO lenses (and if possible my E-M5).
