Some (perhaps all) find the Olympus website a bit tough to navigate.
Olympus has put together a check list on how to send back to the repair center for US customers.

If you need to send in a lens /body/accessory for repair within the USA, please refer to this document. It can save you a few dollars, in some cases 30-40% of shipping cost.

Further note, it seems that most repairs are only taking 2-3 days once the equipment arrives at the service center, very good to hear.

We also have the forms for you to type on in this thread -

Thank you for posting that.

I got the E-500 2-lens kit back in October. I have about 300 clicks of the shutter. At this point in time it is the most disappointing camera I have ever owned. I have a Easyshare that out produces this.

My daughter is very pleased with her kit. I'm ready to take mine to the range and do some shooting with a 12 gague.

I have a E-20, which in my opinion, is one of the finest cameras Olypus has ever produced.

I'll be writing to them tomorrow. And again thanks for your post.
