I bought it in 2012. Took 45K pictures -- much less than gazillions

it died suddenly and never wanted to power on ever again.

Random electronic failures don't count, especially since you might be the only one who managed to kill an olympus camera like that.

I've read however that the em5 had a sort of switch failure... think it was the on/off switch.

One-offs shouldn't count - but just sometimes the fails are rather larger...

Of course these days we wouldn't have so many makers relying on only one or two sensor manufacturers, would we?
