I suspect I don't shoot enough to really wear out a camera. I have never done so. I did ruin a GM1 through misadventure.

I just want to share that I carried my GM1 everywhere and it fell out of the belt loop case one day to the pavement. The mechanical shutter does not seem to work but the electronic shutter still works. It's still my favorite camera

I have actually dropped my GM5 on hard surfaces (including pavement) a few times now. One corner on the bottom has a hairline crack. The top plate on the left side is a little bit warped. But it still works perfectly. I love those tiny cameras, but they sure do invite risk.
