Paul:That's what my E-M5 did. Shutter locked up 'down'. Nothing would unstick it. It's being repaired by Oly-Canada. Cost is C$305, including taxes and shipping. I wondered about replacing rather than repairing; however, I'd prefer to wait for the E-M5III. Seems like I'll be using the mkI for a while yet.
In the interim been using OM-2N to finish off some film I had. What a nice viewfinder........

Just got back from three days in Rome and a 7-day Greek cruise.Yesterday, right before we were getting off the bus to walk to Trevi Fountain, I pressed the shutter on my E-M5 to grab a shot of whatever it was we were standing next to, and the camera locked up and went dark. I knew it couldn't be batteries since I had one in the grip as well as the body.I ended up shooting the fountain with the iPhone...Got back to the hotel, charged two batteries up and put them back in the camera. Nothing. Decided to try the let-it-sit-without-batteries-for-24-hours trick. Just got home after no batteries for 30 hours - nada.I looks like my E-M5 may have just died. Not good. A new body ain't in the budget right now.Anyone have any suggestions before I call Olympus and see how much it might cost to get it repaired?If I decide to just go with a clean used E-M1, will I still be happy? A new body for $1200 or $1600 ain't gonna happen any time soon.At least it held up through the first two days in Rome and on the cruise through Greece.I am, as they say, not happy. Especially since I know I have some shoots coming up in the next month...
