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.

I don’t disagree with you. The E-M5.3 is off of my radar for other reasons, but this is an issue that is hard to overlook, depending on use case.

God loves the noise just as much as the signal.
