Hi all,

Did you see this thread ? :
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1041&thread=34471923

I wanted to ask to the EP-2 owners if they noticed this or anything failed in the layer on their body ? May be the EP-1 is of the same layer ?
If there is a failure with the layer ( I thought the body was anodized...) I would prefer to order for the Japan silver EP2 ?

Thanks you very much

Kind regards

I think that if you go for the black pearlescent E-P2, you should either look for a leather protective case or be prepared to pick up scratches on the paint finish.

Having said that, the linked problem - with paint peeling off looks like a clear case of manufacturing defect. I would send it back and expect for it to be replaced.

Cheers

Brian

thats a coatings failure plain and simple , i would expect a replacement too

the ep1 silver i own has a clear lacquer, probably acrylic bases over the brushed stainless
front \sides and the top bottom seem to be sandblasted stamped aluminum perhaps anodized

Thank you very much,
Anyway, I think, and I only use Olympus camera (E3, E1, E330), that for this price, it's quite a cheap body, don't you think ?
I'll certainly buy a Pen but... I'm just thinking about this.
Anyway it seems quite rare.
Thanks for sharing

Kind regards
