E-3 cracked top LCD and weathersealing?
5 months ago

Just a question to the cognoscenti.

I accidentally dropped a ballhead onto the top of my E-3 (don't ask - it was a very stupid move) and the top LCD display is now cracked. See pictures below:

Right now, I've got some clear packing tape keeping things together. Eventually, I'll get some gaffer's tape and seal the edges and to make sure that the glass doesn't come off.

Anyway, I'm sure the answer is obvious - what is the impact to weathersealing?

I'm not planning on shooting in the rain, however, I do plan on doing long exposures at night to get star trails, so I may end up outside for hours. During this time, moisture in the air and dew may get on the camera.

I don't think that sending the camera in to Olympus is an option - since I'll probably end up paying a considerate sum for it and I got my E-3 for effectively, a song.
