Olympus Northamerica issues an official statement where it promises to repair al E-M10II cameras having a lock pin issue. The full press text can be downloaded as PDF:

Olympus has discovered that the lens lock pin on a small number of OM-D E-M10 Mark II cameras has malfunctioned, causing certain lens es to detach from the mount. No reports of this issue have been received from within North America, however, it has been determined that camera s sold within North America may also be susceptible to this issue when connected to plastic mount lenses. The Olympus lenses that could be affected are limited to five: M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14 – 42mm f3.5 – 5.6 L, 14 – 42mm f3.5 – 5.6 II, 14 – 42mm f3.5 – 5.6 II R, 40 – 150mm f/4.0 – 5.6 and 40 – 150mm f/4.0 – 5.6 R. It is important to be aware that this issue poses no risk of personal injury or property damage other than potentially damaging the lens itself from its detachment from the mount unexpectedly. As a  result, Olympus is offering a free  inspection and  repair program  for owne rs  of  the  OM – D E – M10 Mark II with serial numbers located  within the limited lots that  have been affected

Thanks Olympus for reacting that quickly! I hope similar service will be announced soon for Europe and other regions too.
