While on the subject of sockets, the Oly USB socket seems to cause problems with third party remotes, the plug needs a hell of a lot of push to get it to contact then the plug comes apart when extracted. Something is wrong with that micro multi-USB port and/or the tiny plug/socket specifications.

I have the same problem with my E-M5.  I have pulled apart two pixel remote cables so far.  Got one back together and broke one.  Ordered a couple more spares just in case.
