I have had three E-3s and all of them has been repaired at least once, two had shutter failures with less than 30000 activations, one died from moisture damage and don't even get me started on the issues with the LCD. It is the only camera I have owned that I have needed to repair, actually the only camera model I have owned that has actually broken.

Granted I am not easy on my equipment, I have had to repair several lenses as well but the build quality of the E-3 is not good (it feels quite robust though) so I would be surprised if it is worse than the OM-D which I haven't tried.
