Are some battery /SDcard slot covers deliberately made flimsy
2

I have an OM-D E-M5 Mk II that has a broken lock/unlock tab that broke. Like many others with this experience, I found the piece of plastic is so thin that any sensible designer would have made it from metal or used a thicker ABS or strong plastic.

I just wonder if it was a ploy to get customers to pay for a replacement. And you can't easily buy one readily. Someone asked on Aliexpress for well over US$50 for that small cover piece. Must be like paying $20K for a broken Porsche tail lamp. What a rip-off from a bad design decision from Olympus. Apart from not making sure they managed their accounting in the last decade or two.
