Viewfinder Tilt

Has anyone noticed this with the E3? It is apparentely a known problem and my camera has it, about 1 deg of tilt to the left when the viewfinder is set square to the scene.

Has anyone had this fixed under warranty? I will phone Olympus on Monday but just wondering if anyone can share their experiences.
