    Actually it's even better than that. Three years additional warranty in addition to the standard two years plus six months for registering, total five and a half years. They are confident in their products.

    I have to say that it's all these posts that stop me moving to micro 4/3 which I know I will need to sometime but I hope for some robustnes and reliability improvements first

    Hi Andy.
    I can understand where you are coming from. However, there are a number of factors that I suspect lead you to a rather too pessimistic perception.

    Firstly, the group has many more members now and secondly there are many many more Olympus cameras "in circulation", especially since the introduction of the OM-D range. The existence of more cameras and more members will inevitably mean that you will read a greater number of references to warranty/repairs but it is quite possible that the actual reliability statistics

    Got mine sorted by phone , they send out paperwork with the code number which you input in the registered section of the Olympus site

    The extra warranty is "delivered" as a code which you have to use to activate it on the My Olympus site. https://my.olympus-consumer.com/

    In my case I got the three year extended warranty free for pre- ordering the E-M10 Mk II. It came as a box (about the size of a CD containing various bits of paper including the magic code) from SRS from whom I bought the camera. It pays to register any bodies and lenses you buy with My Olympus as you automatically get six months extra warranty ( on a new purchase) just for registering. It then means that Olympus have a record of the dates of purchase and serial numbers of all your kit which makes life much simpler if you need to resolve any problems in the future.

    Regards.

    I might be having an old age moment, but I can't see it anywhere on the Olympus.co.uk site.
    Even searching for "Extended Warranty" only turns up a couple of things which aren't applicable (Just the Service Plus 6 month extension).
    There is however an option under My Products to register the number of the 3 year extended warranty.

    It's a nice idea but I shall probably replace it with the Mk2 before then!

    Agreed, I took this out last week, the warranty on my E-M1 now continues to April 2019.

    I purchased my Olympus extended warranty from WEX.
