Lens repairs

While on holiday in January my 35 mm macro lens stopped focussing automatically, when I came home I took it into A J Johnston in Glasgow for repair, but to my horror I got a call from them to say that Olympus were no longer supporting that lens. I would guess they are concentrating on M4/3 lenses. I can still use it manually, but it's a warning that the whole range is not going to be supported. SO sad.

I can't suggest names, but you might have luck if you phone around the independant lens repair companies. They'll often buy up broken stock off ebay and also end of the line support gear when gear is put out of official support - and thus be able to make repairs .

Ok, I'll do that. Thanks for the advice
