Hi, yesterday I finally received a new E-M1X, wow..

I was a bit surprised that the flipscreen had no display protection, the shutter count was at 280 (seems normal). The battery pack was completely empty.

Maybe I got a product from another customer who sent it back?


I have noticed that they have discontinued the use of that protective film on the display on models introduced after late 2019, so it very probably applies to the E-M1X by now, too (maybe it even started with that model - I have never handled one) . I have lately noticed definitely-brand new Olympus models with shot counts over 200 - one even with 420. Completely empty batteries are also common. So hopefully, all is fine.
