    I put a small chip in the rear element of my Only 12mm F2 lens. It's near the edge. and is obvious in some light. The element moves, and appears to be held in by 3 screws, so I'm hoping it's easily replaceable. Has anyone had a lens repaired? What was the cost?

    Call Olympus. My guess is that they can't/won't, largely because it's very uneconomical - but you never know until you ask.

    Rear element, wow!
    I guess that really is going to affect photos, If the chip was on the front it might not have done much.
