Last March I purchased an OMD E-M5. The camera has performed flawlessly for me. I took it on a month long trip to China and Tibet and was very happy with quality of the photos as well as using the camera. I have all but abandoned my D7000 and am using the E-M5 almost exclusively now. My paranoia is coming from lately reading more and more about the main dial falling off. The one on my camera seems to be on quite tight but I am getting more worried about it coming off. I use the camera with the upper part of the HLD grip and have set the grip's dial to be the main dial, and the button inside it as the shutter button. Since I shoot primarily in S or A mode the camera's main dial now serves as exposure comp. This minimizes my use of the camera's main dial with the aim of lessening the chance that it will come off. So given this, does anyone have any idea on how common is the problem of the main dial falling off? I know this is hard to gauge since you only hear about it from those it happens to and not from those whose camera's are working fine. I am going on another long overseas trip in the early part of next year. I will be taking my E-M5 but now that I am aware of the problem with the main dial, I am trying to plan some contingencies should the dial fall off while on this trip. I do not want to take two cameras. Perhaps I'll take a small tube of glue, but this is not ideal.
