    Shutter died last week but worked intermittently. Sent it in by courier on Wednesday morning and has it back at 4pm Friday ..... outstanding work A&E Electronics in Christchurch New Zealand .... best service EVER! New shutter, full service and sensor clean ..... all in a few hours. THAT is why I can use Olympus professionally. Nikon used to turn aroung repairs in 5-7 days which I thought was good ..... but this is unreal .... I could literally have driven there and waited :) ... all under Warranty!

    Olympus is supposed to have good service in Australia as well. Always good to hear about good service, keeps customers coming back.

    I just hope Olympus fix some of the niggling issues that I see posted about with the new EM1 Mk2 possibly coming out later this year. Especially as I hear they want to make inroads into the Pro market where reliability is very important.

    Great to hear! I just swapped out my E-M5 for the E-M5ii. Still getting it set up, but it seems like a big step up, and I loved the M5.

    I have found A&E very good as well. They have replaced 2 sensors and peeling back trim for my E-M1 under extended warranty, quickly and efficiently.
    Oh, and cleaned up my supposed dust proof E3, after a day on a windy beach with fine sand which stopped all functions!

    I had my EM-10 repaired (faulty mode dial) by Olympus. Excellent and quick service despite travelling to Spain and back (I live in the UK!).

    Maybe this is a sign that Olympus might be stepping their repair centers up to equal Canon and Nikon Professional Service? :hiding:
