    Important Announcement regarding Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

    Olympus takes every effort to ensure that our products are of the highest quality, and are safe for consumers. When a product concern arises, we investigate the details with the intent of communicating relevant findings and implementing an appropriate resolution as quickly as possible. Olympus Corporation has discovered that the lens lock pin on a small number of OM-D E-M10 Mark II cameras does not function properly, causing certain lenses with plastic mount not to lock properly. To date Olympus Europa did not start delivery of OM-D E-M10 Mark II to the market, with just very few exceptions. However, in order to secure uncompromised customer satisfaction it has been determined that European stock is being inspected prior to further distribution of the product to retail partners. The few cameras already sold within Europe may also be susceptible to this mechanical issue. For the users of these cameras, Olympus is offering a free inspection and maintenance, as a matter of cause. Owners of the new OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera should contact Olympus European Customer Support Center by calling 00800 67 10 84 00*. Olympus customer advisors are standing by with details of how to submit the camera for this free inspection. Alternatively, customers may send an e-mail to camera.repair.uk@olympus.eu. In this case it is necessary to include the camera’s serial number in the e-mail. This number is located on the bottom of the camera body. Kindly accept our apologies for any inconvenience this issue might cause. Our customers' satisfaction is our number one priority and we go to great lengths to ensure Olympus products meet the rigorous quality standards expected by our customers at all times. * Free phone number.

    Urgent notification for all users of the VG-170 camera

    Hamburg, 21 May 2015 – Due to a technical fault that can cause slight electric shock if the VG-170 camera is subjected to strong impact, Olympus is offering a free inspection and repair service to all users of this camera. Users of the VG-170 are advised to contact Olympus Customer Service as soon as possible to arrange for an inspection.  

    No risk of serious injury
    The potential electric shock may occur if the camera has been subjected to a strong impact and the user subsequently operates the zoom lever or shutter release. The electric shock does not represent a serious risk of injury. However, it can cause significant numbness of the fingertip, and thus discomfort. As of May 2015, this fault has affected three out of approximately 430,000 VG-170 cameras sold worldwide until end 2013. Olympus has notified the competent authorities for information purposes.

    How to contact Olympus
    To eliminate this possibility, Olympus urgently requests that owners of the VG-170 contact Olympus Customer Support before using their camera again – by calling +49-40-23773-899*. Olympus customer advisors are standing by with details of how to submit your camera for inspection and repair. Alternatively, send an e-mail to di.support@olympus-europa.com. If you contact us in writing, please be sure to include your camera’s serial number in the e-mail. You’ll find this number on the bottom of your camera.
    Kindly accept our apologies for any inconvenience this issue might cause. Your satisfaction is our number one priority and we go to great lengths to ensure Olympus products meet the rigorous quality standards expected by our customers at all times.
