    I took 9 pictures in our garden at Large Fine JPG setting with my new E-M5:eek:, and all have lines running across them. Does anyone know if this is a faulty sensor, or something else?

    I've enclosed a picture. The lines are visible on a 24" monitor without zooming in.

    This looks like interference, either from the internal circuitry of the camera itself or from an outside source. Are you by any chance close to a strong radio transmitter? If not, take the camera with you a few blocks away and see if it persists, the idea is to get away from a possible external source of interference. If so, I'd return it, this is definitely not OK.
