OMD dead pixel in EVF, your opinions?
Mar 16, 2013

I bought my OMD a couple of days ago, and yesterday, I noticed that there is a dead pixel in the viewfinder. When pointing a white sky, it's clearly visible, as well as in very dark areas. But as only only single pixel is affected (I think) you have to be looking for it to see it. However, now I know it's there.

Anyone else noticed this with his/her OMD? What would you do? I know the shop where I bought my OMD has pretty terrible return policy (screw them!) so I know that if I send it for repair, I'll have to wait a couple of weeks (here in Belgium anyway). But I don't want to care if it actually happens quite often, i.e. if another dead pixel reappears a couple of weeks later.

What's your take on this?

Thanks!
