E-M5iii tripod mount/bottom plate failure
41

This one goes back to Olympus for a new bottom plate.  I guess a couple of days of 60mm macro lens on a tripod was too much for it.  I've treated this camera exactly like I treated my E-M5ii.  No large lenses, no bumps, some time on a belt strap, lots of time me manually focusing the 60 mm macro lens.  The design is not robust enough for my normal usage.

No more tripod use unless Olympus goes to a redesigned bottom plate.
