Solar burn

I don't seem to be having much luck, with the EM5 MKII recently purchased 2nd hand. First the battery door, which was an easy fix and now it seems the sun has damaged my EVF. This one is a little less easy to resolve.

I've a couple of days left of the return period, so it looks like its going back for a refund or replacement.

Re: Solar burn

Yes that's a known problem I'm afraid. I think it tends to happen when the EVF dioptre adjust is used a lot I understand. Hope you get a replacement or a fix.
