Bear with me if I could find the answer myself from the manual. Would the registration do any good to the warranty?
How do you register? I still have about 6 weeks of warranty left on mine.
Upon seeing this, I registered my 12-40 and it got me a 1 month extended warranty along with 10% off of accessories. Its nothing to write home about and in the eventuality that the lens does break between month 12 and 13, it would ease things up. But I know I am covered by the warranty for much more than just 12 months here. Although the law is a bit unclear, I'd say that having a Pro lens used in a recreative way should last at the bare minimum 5 years (as long as that is considered reasonable, then that is what the actual warranty).
So, out of curiosity. What would you say is a reasonable amount of time an E-M5 or a 12-40 should last granted it is used and not abused ?
