"Olympus Imaging Corporation has been providing Worldwide warranty for digital cameras and accessories since April 1, 2004, except for some countries and regions.
However, the time has come to stop providing Worldwide warranty because of regulation by laws and differences in the infrastructure of the repair facilities in individual countries.
Please kindly be informed that Worldwide warranty will not be provided with most of our Micro Four Thirds System and compact digital camera products shipped after September of 2014."

I interpret this to mean that the Worldwide Warranty still holds for items shipped during September (i.e. before the 30th). Does that sound correct?

Olympus told me all currently shipping cameras with Worldwide warranty cards will be honoured. Cameras currently being "packed" (after September 2) are being assembled with non-worldwide warranty cards to indicate the change.

So, if you buy an Olympus camera and it does have a Worldwide Warranty card, you're good to go.
