Re: E-5 repair experience, seems good...

The E-5 arrived back yesterday with 5 faults fixed, 1 of which was service & cleaning, the shutter (or mirror box - they used the same terminology on my invoice?) was fixed (obviously), the mode button (I hadn't noticed anything wrong with that), Body Rubbers?? (The grips on the exterior don't look new, maybe this means the seals?) and the final one was software update.
Hopefully it will be good for a while longer now!

Iain, glad you have the E-5 back. Any idea what the software update was and if it is generally available?

I checked the firmware version last night and it is showing 1.3, but I don't know what it was before the repair!

11834 it hasn't reset to zero - doh! But at least it works

There is only a 6 month guarantee on the repaired parts so fingers crossed once that runs out!

All the 'My Set' settings were still intact too, so at least I don't have to go through that again

Re: E-5 repair experience, seems good...

I had the shutter fail on my E5 at 10400 shots and only 2 weeks out of warranty. Long story short with a few emails back and forth between Oly and myself I got it fixed for 150 euro.

I wonder whats the highest shutter count on an E5 thats on the original shutter?

Re: E-5 repair experience, seems good...

Maybe, you have to get the "miles/Shutter actuation's on the E5 in the Warranty period, in order to claim a repair".

I think, given the estimated 150,000 specified in the "blurb" manual/tech spec on line/launch info it should be repaired foc with only P&P charged under 75,000 or even 150,000

OR Maybe Olympus, like my Pottery Tutor says one thing not believing you would ever use it that much ... my potter said, "hourly rate is £36 until your making a thousand pots an hour ... " as the best potter at making the most an hour has the record of 175 pots an hour ... there is no chance of me getting anywhere near it

Nor 150,000 shutter actuation s on my E5 or any camera in 2 or even 3 years !

IN FACT someone ought to issue a writ for a TEST CASE against Olympus ! given the case of the "soap" marketing
