Hi all, Sorry if there's already a thread on this issue, but I couldn't find one. So, I thought I'd start a thread with some of the issues that the users have been talking about. Prior to purchasing my OM-D, I did an extensive research on the product as it was going to be my first >$1000 camera. And, after I bought mine, I went over the check list to make sure that I didn't have the problems that some people were having. I thought I'd share my list here, so that others can go through it after the purchase. Most common ones were: - Paint job of the silver kit. Some silver bodies had poor (uneven) paint jobs, and that contributed to the slower release of the silver kits in the market. Olympus remedied the problem by making their silver color formula a little darker. Not really a solution, but it did make the flaws less visible. Some earlier productions have brighter silver colors compared to the ones you can find these days. - Hot-shoe error. Some OM-Ds had issues with FL-300R, the flash module that is on a rebate promotion at the time of this writing. - More than normal opening between the camera's main body frame and the lens mount. (The place around where E-M5 is etched on and left microphone opening) - Battery grip's AC adapter rubber cover doesn't stay closed. Less common ones were: - LCD malfunctioning. (Flickers and green lines) - Dead/hot pixels. This one exists for almost all types of cameras. Good to check for, though. Also, check for any oil smudges on the sensor. Some cameras have that issue. - Slanted lens mount. One user reported this issue and got a reply from Olympus that it won't affect the image. I don't understand how it can't, but... Oh well, mine doesn't have this problem. - Uneven leatherette cover. Not a bug, but some issues that some users aren't happy with: - No support for ISO 100 (50), and the max shutter speed of 1/4000 - 5-axis IS not supported with non-native lenses in the movie mode. - Shoooooo~~shing sound when turned on. Doesn't bother me. - Something that has to do with light metering (I didn't quite understand this, but quite a few users are unhappy about this. Didn't bother me, obviously, since I don't even understand what it's about...) - Small, squishy buttons. Meh. Didn't bother me. - EVF sensor too sensitive and cannot adjust the sensitivity. This actually is a bit annoying. It's a touch screen, but when I touch, the screen goes black. Hopefully, Olympus would let users control the sensitivity in the later firmware update. - Lack of wireless shutter release support. I have a wireless release adopter for my E-P2, so no biggie. But, yeah, it would've been nice to have one less thing to carry. - On/off switch location. This, weirdly enough, I actually liked. So, what's your experience? Have you heard of anything else we should look out for?
