    Well, if you've read the thread, many people have been concerned that this was a systematic issue or a design flaw that may affect every lens. I'm not trying to force any conclusions though, just sharing my experience with my kit.

    In comparison the OM-D M5 "Sticking shutter" problem seems to be a much more common problem.

    I wonder why that does not stir up the feelings as much as the 12-40 lens problem? To my opinion it is handled as bad as the broken lenses.

    Please check and see if your credit card (if you used one to purchase it) has a purchase protection feature. Mine does and will definitely cover accidental losses within a limited time from purchase date.
