    So, due to an unfortunate accident the electronic viewfinder on my E-M5 is cracked, and I'm headed to Tokyo on Sunday.

    You can still see through the viewfinder but it's blurry and you can't tell if the camera had focused or not. The LCD screen still works fine though, and so does everything else inside the camera, so I can still take pictures.

    I saw that Olympus has a repair shop in Tokyo, via this link:

    Looking at the viewfinder it seems like it would be an easy part to replace, as there are two small screws holding it in place. How expensive do you think it will be to replace, and can it be done in a matter of a few hours?

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.
