I hope I can get over the feeling that the E-M5 iii feels a bit cheap and nasty (even though it definitely isn't that cheap).

It's unfortunate that Olympus used cheap feeling plastic for the E-M5iii body when the previous models were metal. I suspect it was a cost saving decision owing to the dire financial situation of their imaging division at the time.

I am okay with the plastic, but I still wish they had used a metal body. I think Olympus would have sold a lot more EM5.3's if the body were metal.

I would have preferred a metal body too.
