Neither did i mean to claim mFT is superior to 4/3.

I just don't have the same experience that 4/3 had a lot better quality than mFT. I never had any problems with my 4/3 gear that was not properly dealt with by Oly Norway. And my e-3 really did hold up against extremely wet weather over quite a few hikes during the time i had it.

And now the same goes for my e-m5. It had the cracked LCD frame, and peeling of paint behind the LCD, but it was fixed properly and fast by Oly. This also has been with me in all kinds if weather with no problems.

So very satisfied Oly user here both on 4/3 and mFT

They have undertaken that they will carefully inspect the next unit before it is sent to me. Another couple of hours out of my day; and taxing the strength I often struggle to find ...

So yeah, mate. I really do understand when people have these kinds of problems. It has little, if anything, to do with the item being a given brand, or another brand ...
