What is your experience with the reliability of Olympus digital cameras?
10 months ago

After eight months the dial on the back of my E PL5 become twitchy. (Olympus fixed it under warranty.) The sensor on my XZ1 quit a few days after the first year I owned it. (Olympus came up with a good solution to my expired warranty.) The E PL5 still sometimes stops showing the view (it continues to show shutter/aperture etc. information); I suspect overheating.

I find the Olympus cameras very satisfying to use, but before this I used a Canon S70, a Pentax WP (the first one), and a Fuji finepix F30; none of these malfunctioned unless I damaged them.

Is Olympus digital worse than any other brand?
