ePhotozine reports that “Olympus is to investigate cracking around the screws of the screen bezel on Olympus OM-D models after many users discovered that their cameras have the fault. There is debate as to whether this is a manufacturing fault where the screws have been over tightened, causing the plastic screen bezel to crack, or whether it is down to the quality of the plastic itself. Olympus are unsure whether the problem is due to a faulty batch, and is currently looking into the issue.”
