    Is it under warranty?

    Find out from service agent and independent repair techs how much it's gonna cost to fix.

    If too much, dump the lens and get a replacement 2nd hand one or a different kit lens, now that the opportunity to purchase presents itself!

    likely the cost is going to be high. just get a second hand one or buy a new one.

    The Oly kit lens are not ex.
    Or if you want to upgrade, you can get the 14-54mm F2.8-3.5 lens..

    I'm not so sure, guess if a camera claim it is XXX proof, XXX proof, tougher than armour tank, think warranty should cover everything.
