    Some may know there had been some problems with strap lugs coming off
    on the Panasonic G1 and GH1. I don't know if it's particular to the
    G2, 3 or GH2, I suspect not. Anyway, the repair costs of this (for
    out of warranty cameras) have been kept modest, no doubt because the
    original attachment was flawed.
    Anyway, in Canada, the cost is about $25.00 per lug to have them
    replaced which is cheap, no big labour charge. If anyone had this
    happen to their camera post-warranty, and the camera sustained any
    damage because it fell when the lug gave way, they might want to take
    it up with Panasonic since the repair of the lugs entails a different
    attachment method because the original one was flawed.

    Canadian repair contact:

    Nortown Photo Service in Burlington at 905-634-2221 and ask to speak
    with Tony to assist you with the repair of your product. You need to
    go to the website to get a repair form.
