This white E-PL5 was acquired in April 2014 and always babied, never exposed to rain or dust - non smoker owner. In early 2016 the shutter button cap popped off out of the blue and Olympus replaced the whole top plate under warranty hence the lower than total estimated shutter button actuations. On October 2016 the rear dial started behaving erratically and the back plate was replaced by Olympus under extended warranty. On July 2019 the IBIS stopped working, Olympus asked too much to repair so I unstuck it myself but I messed up sensor alignment and have no patience for the tedious realignment process so I decided to break her up for parts. Maybe a revenge decision for her 3rd failure while being always babied, aaargh!
Total shutter actuations (usually shooting 3-5 frame bursts): 22K

there will be no more bumps postings for this listing as long as it remains in the search results under “E-PL5”

all remaining spare parts are stored and always available to anyone in need no matter how much time has passed by as long as I am active in the forum - if you need a missing screw for your camera or so just ask

only thing that could change in the listing is selling the top plate over ebay and the listing will be updated if it happens
