E-M1 - how durable is the paint?
Feb 15, 2014


I'm thinking of buying an E-M1 and would be grateful for any feedback about the durability of the paint finish. This doesn't affect operation of the camera, of course, but I would be grateful for feedback from E-M1 owners about this, especially about the painted hotshoe.

The DPreview of the EM-5 showed wear on the hotshoe, presumably from mounting an external flash, and this is a slight concern for me (as I may need to sell the E-M1 in the future) and wonder if the E-M1 has been improved in this respect. I realise that cameras are fundamentally tools to be used but I would prefer to keep the camera in the best possible condition to maximise the resale value should the need arise.

Don't be dense, it's lens not 'lense'!
