    Sourcing parts for an Olympus E-P1...

    I want to replace the bottom plate of my E-P1 -- it was used with a Slik quick-release mounting plate and has become distorted around the tripod mounting point, so it now rocks when sitting on a counter -- but unlike Panasonic, Olympus doesn't appear to sell parts for their cameras online.

    It's an easy matter to R&R the piece, so I don't want to send it to them for repair, just buy the part and do it myself. Is there some way to do this that I have overlooked or do I need to get in touch with them to find out how one goes about this?

    Thanks!

    Try to email or telephone Olympus parts and spares. The part isn't listed on the parts and spares website: https://us.buyolympus.com/parts/came...ur-thirds.html

    The base plate is so soft and the tripod mount is fixed to it, you can probably just push it back into shape.

    True, but one corner is also dinged from when the camera fell onto concrete, so I figured I'd throw two stones at one bird...
