Anyone else giving up on Olympus?
Aug 20, 2014

Just wondering if anyone else is fed up with Olympus? Personally, I'm done with them. When my brand new battery grip for my E-M5 had problems that took months to resolve... well, okay. It's a new design, bugs need to be worked out, etc. And warranty work often takes longer than anything else, because they're not making money on it.

But, when the same problems return six months later, and the company tells me it will cost me almost as much as buying a new grip to fix the problem they SAID they fixed, that tells me they have a design flaw, and they don't give a damn about their customers. The E-M5 is useless without the grip. It's too small and awkward to hold and verticals are even worse without the redundant controls. And I'm not going to buy a new grip every six months. So, I'm done with them.

I'm sure others have had similar experiences. Anyone else fed up?
