Broken Panasonic 100-400 lens - an update

Well, after a somewhat torturous process, my lens has been fixed and returned. I have tested it, and it is working perfectly. When I picked up, the shop manager said that the repairman had to go around Panasonic in order to get the parts (although he wasn’t very specific about how). As it turned out, I had not only broken the mount, but also a circuit board. In all, the repair cost $460 AUD or about $300 US.

The lens focuses perfectly with both my Olympus bodies. I haven’t tried it on my G9 yet, but it shouldn’t be a problem. I should also say that the new mount fits my Olympus bodies perfectly now, whereas the lens was very tight before. Needless to say, I am now a much happier camper.
