    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 has focused properly 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.

    Unfortunately I have no experience dealing with Olympus repair yet but most/all services here are pretty fast and quick so I wouldn't be surprised if it will be done quickly as long as the parts are readily available.
