There are tons of all-metal bodies out there!

I absolutely agree that metal feels nicer and definitely looks nicer when scratches eventually happen but it doesn't look there are actually any cameras on the market right now that actually have a fully metal top plate.

So overall, this seems to be a well-placed BS campaign which is readily picked up by the trolls who are grasping for straws to have something to complain about.

While I don't personally care much about the presence of plastic on this E-M5 III, there are many, many cameras that are almost entirely metal, at a variety of price points.

From Panasonic:

GX7

GX8

GH5

G9

From Canon:

EOS-R

From Nikon:

Z7

From Sony:

A7R III

From Fuji:

X-T3

From Pentax, of course:

K3

And finally, from Olympus - look at those lumps!

E-M1 II

E-M1X
