Olympus USA - continuing failure
Jul 14, 2011

I sent this note to Olympus USA a few minutes ago. I report this here as a warning to anyone considering an Olympus purchase or sending items in for repair.

Good morning Daniel,

I received my package with replacement E-5 yesterday. I opened it this morning to check things out. The FS-3 that your tech group installed is CROOKED! When I first looked through the viewfinder I immediately knew it was crooked. Then I closely inspected the grid lines; they are not parallel to the edges of the viewfinder frame.

Avoid any interaction with Olympus USA if at all possible. If you must, buy one of the disposable ยต4/3 systems and forget the rest.
