Re: Portugal servicing

Mine were both within the 3-year warranty periods (just) and they generate a shipping label for you to print when they accept the 'repair', so you fasten that to the outside of the package and take it to the PO. No charge either way.

I've never noticed any grip loss on a digital Oly, but the more-used body must have met their standard for replacement. The last time I had grip separation was on my original OM-1 back in the late 1970s! As I recall Luton Cameras fixed that gratis when it went in for repair after I'd cracked the viewfinder chucking it down the side of Helvellyn...

I've always removed the front connector caps from my bodies (since they don't affect waterproofing and I never use the socket) so I've got a little packet of spares now, so I might as well leave these new ones in place!
