    Hi, I've noticed that the white paint on the "OK" button on my EM10 is starting to peel a little due to usage. Is this a common issue with Olympus buttons? I doubt I am going to repair, just a little surprised since the camera is only a year old. This is my first legit camera so this could be very common.

    Seriously? That's the most minor build concern I've ever seen for an Olympus camera! Yeah, if you rough up a plastic button, the paint on it may wear off. Consider it a badge of honor for the camera.

    The buttons on my E500 still look sharp!. I'm not too worried about the E-M10!

    The letters "OK" have almost completely disappeared from my E-M10. I have had it for about 6 months, but I got it second hand so I don't know how much it has been used in total. Fortunately I think I will be able to remember that it used to be the OK button! Reading forum posts about the various problems that crop up with this and other models, I will be very thankful if a bit of missing paint is the worst I experience.
