E-PL2 "wheel"

Within 2 years, the "wheel" of our E-PL2 did not operate reliably. It was rather inefficient (and frustrating) to struggle with it to try to make adjustments.

Luckily, a little bit of contact cleaner was a good way to fix it. But it needed to be used again after a few months (depending on how often we used the camera). Note: the camera was not used in harsh, dusty environment. And, no other camera suffered a similar problem within the same places/times of use.

Otherwise, the E-PL2 was a great camera. Fast to operate, nice screen (for its time), very nice output (files).
