Panasonic replaced my PL 100-400 with a new lens

In a few days I will pick up a brand new replacement Panaleica 100-400 lens from Panasonic Australia! Thank you and my dealer.

The weather seal had become really chewed up due I believe to the slightly different position of the seal compared to Oly lenses on my EM1.2. It was a very tight mount from day one.

I reported before on how hard it was to try and get through to Panasonic repairs on your own (a call centre that knew nothing) so fortunately I had a supportive dealer who I bought it new from and less than two weeks later a brand new lens.

This is yet another example of replacement vs repair for this particular lens. Good if you are under warranty but....

Credit to whoever said that first and my wife for saying it to me. Make the best you can of every day!
