I saw some flags on the "Me too!" answer, but not on your own. I guess it is kind of a fine line, however, it does actually answer the question, so I would say it is ok to actually post it as an answer.
Adding it as an edit is ok, but one thing I will say is that if the edit is answering the question, rather than clearing up or enhancing the question, then it really probably does belong as an answer. In your case, it is more of the latter rather than the former. Just make sure you mark it as the accepted answer (unless a better one comes along in the near future) to call it out for other potential readers.
One other thing. It really is probably best practice to ask the manufacturer first, rather than post such a question first, then ask the manufacturer. Of all the people in the world, the manufacturer's customer support staff should be best able to answer your questions. If they cannot, then you can at least alert them to the problem, allowing them to answer future customer questions. If you encounter a problem, and it is resolved by the manufacturer, you can always come here after the fact and post a question, then answer it directly, for the benefit of the community at large. It may also be helpful to include a phone number or email to the appropriate contact person at the manufacturer if a replacement part or some such is required to resolve an issue like the one you had with your lomo.
