Set MF & a small aperture then photograph something like a pale wall completely out of focus (moving the camera during the shot helps too).

With a small aperture sensor muck shows clearest and having the remainder as even as possible makes it easy to see.

Re: New camera and 171 shutter activations ??

FWIW the last time I was in Wex they had their Olympus demonstration bodies and lenses out on the shop floor powered up to play with, tethered to the display. I would be very surprised if they sold those as anything other than ex-demo. I probably put 30 shots on their E-M5 playing around so they'd have more than 170 actuations on a display model.
Very odd, I hope you get a camera you're happy with.

Re: New camera and 171 shutter activations ??

Could somebody please advise me that when accessing the EM1-Mk2 menu according to the posts I have seen that after the spanner menu / screen adjusters info then OK! I believe it should say EM1-MarkII 0A 01 01 01 but mine says EM1-Mark II 03 01 01 00 is this OK! or have I something to worry about the damage code is Blank, any members help and advice would be appreciated,

Rev.

Rev you would be better to start a new thread with this question then more people will see it. Sorry I don't know the answer to your question but I'm sure someone will.
