If I were Olympus, I’d probably quietly revise the bottom plate for the next batch. But this is a misuse. It’s just on many cameras it isn’t a problem. On the E-M5.3, it is.

There are thousands of cameras out there working fine with PD Capture clips and other tripod-socket-attached slings, including one made by Olympus. It's a perfectly reasonable expectation that this should simply work. This looks like a design flaw, and it's a dealbreaker for me.
