You know, I love using Olympus equipment, but my E3 died at 65,000 exposures and the E5 probably has just slightly more mileage on it.

Not impressed at all with the supplier they are using for shutters in their Pro cameras. Heck, I think my E510 was more reliable....

There's something about the e-510 & 410 that inspires confidence, I thought my 410 was probably bulletproof, then someone posted a thread illustrating what tiny little bits theirs transformed into after being run over by a juggernaught...

Anyway, throw a hissyfit at Olympus and hope they send you a shiny new E-7 (hope springs eternal)

I think a hissy fit will bounce right off  ; )

I still have a pair of E30's and my Micro set-up. But it's going to be a while before i get the E5 up and running again.
