    Talking to a friend who went Canon his original camera has had to be binned because the sensor went pixilated. The original Oly sensors are still giving super results.
    The only problem I have ever had was with my E300, on which the shutter finally failed at 58,000, not bad as the quoted was 25,000.
    Quality indeed.
    The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.
