    Does anybody know the furthest position in each direction to which you can swivel the articulated screen of the EM5 MKII without causing any harm to the internal wiring? My camera has recently been replaced under warranty due to a defective screen which suddenly happened without an obvious reason after about a week of playing with my new camera. I wonder if I've accidentally rotated the screen too far. The manual isn't very helpful here. It seems defective screens are fairly common with this camera.

    I don't have a E-M5 II, but I had two G6's and now have two GH4's, all of which have fully articulating LCD's like the E-M5 II.

    Regarding how far it can rotate, I honestly don't know, because I never push it beyond its designed hard stops. Between my cameras, I've had them for nearly 3 years now, and haven't had a single issue with them yet.

    It seems that the rotation clicks to a stop at the end of its travel (rotational) freedom. It seems pretty obvious on my copy of the EM5ii where the end of motion is with a definite stop.
