From my experience of Oly service, I'm sure you will be fine with your warranty.
The camera only came out in April 1012 and Oly UK give a 2 year warranty; was yours a grey import?
Mine's got the screen bezel crack and black paint wearing through prematurely, but I'm holding out until towards...
Lots of lockups for me, mainly with 100-300mm, but a clear "D" screen with no errors recorded.
As regards pressing the OK to clear the error message; I'm not sure that's a good idea.
Normal punters aren't supposed to know how to get into the service mode, it's probably intended for Oly...
I've tried what appears to be the same battery from 2 Chinese suppliers and a UK one.
Yes they work, they are lower capacity than genuine batteries, depending on the luck of the draw they might be a Very Tight Fit in the battery grip (they all seem fine in the camera itself, they don't charge...

Seems that when it goes into hibernation, sometimes but not always, the only way to wake it up is to re-seat the battery. Similar problem when chimping, sometimes locks...
Numerous lockups, but only with the 100-300mm when in review mode.

Here are the steps, the same as an E-5
► Camera OFF
► Hold down MENU button and turn ON the camera
► Release MENU button and press MENU again to...

Currently showing 3800 exposures, though this may rise a little if I use it again.

Ned, I hadn't realised tethered shooting was available on any of the micro 4/3s bodies.
There is another route, Studio 2 has tethered shooting.
As I'm sure you know, it was a paid for program which is now out of date and no longer for sale, Viewer being Oly's preferred program.
If you e-mail...
For anyone after a pancake Harrison Cameras of Sheffield have just the one unboxed one in at £199.
