Re: Interesting that this official warning seems to be EM-1 specific...

Certainly if it applies to the other models as well, they should say so, but if not, I wonder what's different in the EM-1 that merits it's own warning.

E-M1 has a 2.36MP viewfinder (same as VF-4) while E-M5, E-M10, and Stylus1 have a 1.44MP viewfinder (same as VF-2).  However, I have talked to one user who had blotches on his E-M5 and sent it in, and was starting to develop them on the E-M1.

Speaking as somebody who just sent sent his 3 month old refurbished E-M5 in for viewfinder problems (it went extremely dim when on vacation in Florida), I hope I'm not having to send in the camera every couple of months for repair.
