How looks your E-M5 after months and years of active use? Whether there are scratches? How it looks?
I've only been using mine for 4 months - but I take it out with me and shoot every day. Slight wear visible on the top, especially the hotshoe, but other than that still looks great since I've had it in a Gariz Half-case pretty much the whole time.
There's also a nick on the EVF glass from when I lost the eyecup.
Slight wear in the normal places (black body), but nothing that negatively affects function. And a small dent in the corner of the screen where it got dropped.
My silver one looks nearly new...
Have the silver E-M5 for 17 months now. Used it alot, about 35k exposures. That is quite a number for me ...
Still looks very good, only a tiny bit of the black color on the right side has gone, but you would have to look very close. The silver colored parts have no sign of wear yet.
I am sad because I will have to sell it (Because I buy the E-M1). And E-M1 is not available in silver, twice as sad :-(
I'm quite upset that they didn't bring out the EM1 in silver - it would have looked a lot better in my opinion, in all black it looks like a small and slightly weird DSLR, with none of the character of the EM5. Still, at least I can put my silver lenses on it, which helps.
After nearly a year my EM5 is immaculate, I keep it in a leather half case to prevent the bottom from scratching.
Mine's got some finish scuffed off especially on the flash hot shoe edges.
Mine has held up pretty well overall, though the main dial broke off once and I had to send the camera in for repair. I do find that all of the angles trap dust and sand though, so I usually brush it off once every 2 weeks or so.
Actually, I'm pretty happy with how well it's held up considering it's seen heavy beach and outdoor use, spilled beer, rain, drunken snapshots, and my sweaty mitts
Mine is mint and it's not like I don't use it a fair bit.
Mine has had some accidental rough treatment, which I feel bad about cause I try to treat my stuff well. But the camera has weathered things beautifully. There are a few scuffs and chips in the silver finish, but they're minor scrapes.
Fifteen months. I've lost two eye cups. The LCD bezel was cracked, but I never bothered to send it in for repair. There are scratches on the bottom where I used a tripod. Also has a few more scratches on the edges of the bottom plate.
Black OMD. Looks like some paint wearing off on the front edge of the top plate just in front of the shutter button.
I've had mine for 14 or so months and it's like new.
