Another case of the E-M5iii tripod mount failing

Just love the justification.

I just love some of the justification exonerating Olympus for what is clearly a serious engineering cock-up, through a bad choice of materials, and construction, probably to save a few cents.

Why was 'nt this area reinforced in some way like other cameras, perhaps with a metal base like my old EM5 Mk1.

The failures we have seen are the same. The camera has rotated in some way about the screw point and the base has failed in shear at the lens mount.

Olympus has form for this sort of thing; remember the EM1 rear dial and strap lugs anybody?

Crap like this should not happen on a €1000+ camera, period.
