Initially I declined but he offered to let me try it over the weekend and on Monday I was back at the shop flexing my credit card. I experienced none of the battery drain or circuit board problems of the original OM-4.
I had one of the first batch of OM4 into the UK so had discovered two of the problems before anything appeared in the photo press. Olympus had already replaced the metering stud on the lens mount of mine before they issued a warning.

But I've never understood why I had so many shutter and circuit board issues compared to other OM4/4Ti users.

My OM1 on the other hand suffered massive abuse and never let me down.
It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
