Another case of the E-M5iii tripod mount failing

After my purchase, now I'm starting to worry.

Luckily I bought the grip with mine, and it has a little locking dial that makes it impossible to overtighten. Plus the grip is made of metal, so I think the camera's bottom is a bit safer.

Instead of retrofitting all those thousands of cameras stored in the warehouses and in the supply chain, it might be cheaper for Olympus to contract with FotoDiox or some other cheap grip maker to supply owners with a cheap grip/reinforcing bar.  maybe with that hole for the battery door?  Certainly, it would be less expensive than a recall.
