I just found this DPR thread about the Canon EOS M5.

And here's another instance.

Note that in both cases there's reference to a metal plate above the plastic base. Fat lot of good that does. The common denominator is the use of cheap PLASTIC.

There's another in the other thread and it was a E-M5 with the magnesium alloy body. I'm also not sure looking online will be completely comprehensive given there certainly will be cases not reported at all online or we just didn't find yet.
