    I've tried searching for threads by 'olyflyer' but I get "Invalid User specified"!

I don't know what was going on, but I suspect that the E-5 that I got from them had perhaps been used for demo purposes.
      I'm glad to see you now have the E5 fixed and working correctly.

      Regarding Park Cameras, well I've been there seen it and done it with them, I had a similar experience to you a couple of years ago, I've highlighted the thread below should you be interested.

        Thanks Neil

        I read your thread with interest. This is the first time I have dealt with them, and they were the only dealers showing the E-5 in stock at the time.

            Got it - thanks Ian.

            Here's the explanation I gave a while ago for why dust spots show up most with small apertures:

              Here is the diagram:



              Nicely done and I think you can visualise that if the screen is moved forward away from the sensor (as it is on Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds) then the dust will be blurred more, while on legacy DSLRs the screen is closer to the sensor, making dust a bigger problem.
