I have recently found the on/off switich on my EM10 has for some reason become very very difficult to turn back and forth. As the author (well, the emissary) of the nasal sebum solution for very sticky lenses when the user tries to attach them to the EM10 (see the threads on this on the dpreview m4/3 forum) I figured I would try it again for this problem. I applied it with a stylus for an iPhone. Result: it works.The on/off switch now moves much more freely, as it did when the EM10 was new.

How to harvest nasal sebum plz?
Just run your finger on the outside of your nose. I am sure that you will pick up a bit of oil from your skin. Nose grease worked wonders with scratched negatives when I worked in a lab. Of course we cleaned the negatives afterwards.

Note the crucial point here: outside, not inside. Running your finger around the inside of your nose will not yield anything that you'd want to apply to a camera.
