    Micro 4/3 Kudos to Olympus repair---so far!

    I have seen and heard so many negative stories about manufacturer repair. My wife's favorite lens, the Olympus 40-150 2.8 had the lens mount snapped off and the internal cables yanked out when she had her fatal accident photographing football. The lens sat in a bag from the date it happened in...
