Re: E5 shutter dies ... in the middle of shooting Taylor Swift

Hell Doug that's a bummer , especially the timing.

Things always break at the wrong time.

My E-5 broke a shutter blade at 30,000 activations . Fortunately it was under warranty. (11 months) . Last month the OVF and top panel display started failing intermittently. I think its a lose ribbon cable , maybe not put back in properly  from the shutter replacement. Its out of warranty though , I have a MAC extended warranty on the camera but I have to pay shipping costs to and back from the US. I will see what  the local guys can do. So at the moment its the E-30 that keeps on going. (And the E-620)
