Re: Shutter button missing cap

Yes, potentially - the E-P5, E-M1 and possibly some other cameras from circa 2013 have a problem in which the front and rear dials become unresponsive after a while, which is very annoying. This can be repaired by Olympus.

I had this problem on my E-M1, which was repaired, and have more recently had it on my E-P5, which I bought secondhand through this forum as an ex-hire model; the camera developed the problem some time after I acquired it.

The E-M1 I managed to get repaired free of charge through the London Camera Exchange as I had bought it from new from there, but the E-P5 repair I anticipate having to pay for.
