It is good you got it replaced under warranty. As you may have noticed I did not because I purchased used. Really, the skin of an E-M5 is almost as fragile as an eggshell. I sometimes see people referring to it as tough, but I have to seriously disagree. I go out of my way to avoid abusing this camera like no previous Olympus I have had; it is clear even superficially it can't take it.

On a side note mine has been fine since. I am using only small light lenses now, but still no QR plate. Hopefully this lasts.
