I received an announcement email today that OMDS Canadian Service will now be available through Sun Camera Service, located in the Toronto area.
When Olympus transferred its Imaging Division over to Japan Industrial Partners on January 1 2021 a large number of worldwide personnel were cut. It is my understanding that this included all of the Canadian personnel who were directly involved with the Olympus Imaging Division.
This meant that Canadian owners of Olympus gear needed to send their equipment to the USA for warranty and other repairs. Having OMDS Canadian Service through Sun Camera Service is a positive development.
I imagine that this arrangement has been in the works for some time. On a personal basis I’m pleased to see the creation of this OMDS Canadian Service arrangement. I’ve been expressing my concern to my main contact at OMDS that not having Canadian warranty and repair support in this country was be a negative for the brand that could inhibit growth.
