I would have said OMD until this weekend but now I'm not so sure. I got mine out of the cupboard yesterday after very little use and the screen is cracked. It looks like impact damage but I have not banged it or dropped it. I have used Nikon DSLR's for many years and never had such a problem. I'm now wondering about the build qulaity of the OMD compared to a DSLR which costs half as much.

Stuff happens.   Occurrences like this aren't common, relative to the amount of bodies sold.   Product failures can happen, and do happen, for any product that is manufactured.   Reasonable people, as well as the manufacturers, understand this.

I do understand this but I have been shooting with various cameras since my first job when I bought a camera. That was in 1985. I currently own 6 slr's and 3 compacts as well as my OMD. It seems odd that it broke with nothing seeming to have caused it.

Aside from that I mentioned it in another thread and it seems to be more common with the OMD than you'd think. I'm not alone anyway.

I've worked through the Pen line and now have two OM-Ds, not one spot of failure that called for any of 'em to require service.
