Sony farms repairs out to Precision Camera Repair. Same as Olympus. Panasonic has a huge repair hub out in Texas. Their repairs are so slow, I'm turned off buying any Pany gear. Canon has pay-in CPS services, though I'm not sure how strict they are with gray market Canon equipment. I don't understand why independent authorized repair facilities can't handle repairs? Mirrorless cameras should actually be more easier since there are less moving parts at least with bodies. When Nikon made the first V1 and J1, they bragged how few parts go into their construction. Also I don't see much difference between mirrorless and DSLR lenses, they should be pretty much the same...a barrel with glass inside!What are the repair options and policies from the competition (Canon, Sony, etc)?
