Olympus OMD E-M5 Mark II

I aim to use this as a way of recording how I get on with the Olympus OMD E-M5 mark II.
 

I took the plunge last night (04/05/2015) and ordered the camera along with the 12-40 Pro lens less than 10 minutes before the offer at SRS Microsystems expired!
 

A short while ago I sold my Olympus E-5 camera and had been using the E-M10 until an accident on a windy day left it somewhat mangled and twisted. Using a borrowed E-620 (thanks Ron) I had managed to keep shooting, but was happy last week when the insurers instructed me to send the lens (12-60mm) for service/repair and stated they would be transferring money for replacing the camera.
 

Happy that I would be receiving money to replace the camera, I decided at the weekend to have a play with the broken E-M10 and started removing some of the bent external components; to cut a long story short, after a few blows with the hammer and some twisting by hand the lens mount now accepts lenses and the base plate is much more level than it had been! It isn't pretty (hammer blows tend to have that effect) but it is now functioning and can be used as my 'carry everywhere' camera - that's what I call a result!
