    I registered for and received the extra 6 months warranty but I haven't received the extra 3 years warranty yet, despite registering for the Mk II updates yesterday. Lucky dip time?

      I suspect it's a glitch... I've registered for reviews and re-requested the newsletter, but no additional warranty. There is an "Activate" button for another 3 years but that requires a code you have to purchase.

        ..and if you read the terms and conditions I think that the extended warranty has to be purchased during the original warranty period.

                  My thinking too.... I've tried registering for the reviews but no additional warranty.

                    Thanks for the heads up on this. Hope it's genuine but seems too good to be true.
                    Not the best way to get us to buy the Mk 2 then! The price prohibits this at the moment.

                      For those having problems finding things they registered, check you don't have more than one login. Oly's various sites are a bit of a mess. It's sometimes not clear which login you should use.
                      Did all of the above, so not sure any solid answers yet thanks i will keep monitoring this thread and maybe buzz olympus soon to ask.

                        Just tried this. Said page is unavailable. Too good to be true then?

                          I hope not Dave. This thread was started with a really positive feeling I hope it's not all going down the pan. It would be a great precedent to set if Olympus confirmed it was correct and that they were also introducing a 6 yr warranty for early pre-order adopters of the EM1 mk2 as well. That might help people who are a bit shocked about the price get over the hurdle.

                            I think I know what's going on here now! Just heard on the Facebook Olympus OM-D Owners Group UK page that someone who bought the Mk II direct from the Oly shop got an extra 3 year's warranty. That's where I bought my Mk I, so looks like they added it retrospectively, which is nice. Did you buy your Mk I from the Oly shop Phill?
