    what happened to the E-M 5 Mk1 can't find it anywhere --Olympus web site--Amazon or B&H--plenty of E-M 10's around

    Unless you need weather sealing, E-M10 mk 1 is a good buy

    Except for weather sealing, the E-M10 is the better camera IMHO (and I have both).

    I had both the E-M5 and the E-M10. Over a period of six months I had four E-M10's. Three, yes 3 E-M10 bodies went bad within six months. The first one went bad after 6 days and none of the three had over 600 shutter count. Guess what I no longer have.

    Wow, that's bad luck. What happened to them? I bought mine used and so far, so good.

    The first one, black body and twin lens kit, bought at Best Buy in late June 2015 on day 6 when I turned the camera on the shutter sounded like it was chattering. They replaced the camera. The second one the LCD screen quit working. Fuji replaced the camera. Then on that replacement when in Chicago in early December of that year I took about a dozen shots, turned the camera off. When I turned it back on I heard a series of clicks then nothing. Shut it off and turned it back on and the same happened. I used the GM-5 and 15mm lens that was in my jacket pocket for the remained of that trip. That black E-M10 was again replaced. I then sold that replacement plus the silver E-M10 that I had purchased from a California dealer as a store demo. I cannot have a camera that is so unreliable that I have to carry a backup. So far, I have had no problems with the E-M5 which I purchased used with about 7k shutter trips.
