.....well, I did hold it, framed an in-store shot and 'slobbered' a bit. It has a noticable bit larger hand grip which I like (I'll bet the add-on grip makes it perfect, for me).

I tried the camera with my FT 9-18 and 'WHAMO!' AF in a flash......

The cost is BIG for the package, camera, grip, extra battery(s), tax and a couple more cards ... buTTTTTTTT, where there is a want that overrides need, there is a way.

Ouch!!!! Now that sucks. Ask your dealer to give to you the contact information for the regional manufacturer's representative. You may have a good case to get some relief from the manufacturer. Good luck.

I would second that, I have always had good luck going right to Honda America on things that broke outside warranty, usually they will pick up or reimburse a portion if not all of the part.

Way to go Bob. Be sure and posts some shots from your new camera so the rest of us will be jealous!

As much as I would like to buy the E-M1 MKII, I'm a firm believer of waiting for the bugs to be ironed out in the camera and firmware. I also enjoy someone else dealing with the depreciation.
The E-M1 MKI I just purchased with a 12-40mm, f2.8 Pro @1299USD is looking better all the time.
