Re: build quailty very over-hyped...

in my opinion. both my e-1 and e-3 have broken and are useless. the e-1 flash card pin broke, and the lcd screen of the e-3 broke apart. both with less than 15,000 shutter activations, and with very light useage. mean while my consumer grade canon power shot g5 has over 20,000 activations and is going strong, and my pany fz20 still is working great. the E series may be built like tanks, but tanks are not very reliable.
