Default E3 paint work ... wearing off

Hi Guys

Just wondering whether any else has noticed the pain work on their EX's wearing off ? On my E3 I'm seeing a couple of small patches of grey on the bottom plate, which was a bit surprising as my E1's basically perfect.

I haven't seen that but I think you have used your E3 a lot more than I've used my E5.

I was going to say that anyone complaining about small patches of grey doesn't get sympathy from me (or Ken, probably). But on a serious note this is a good place to get touch-up paint:

Europe: http://www.micro-tools.de/index.php?...hmanufacturer=

(The euro price seems a lot higher than the USD price.)

People are made to be loved and things are made to be used. The confusion in this world is that people are used and things are loved. (Unknown author)

Well, I've been using my E-3 very frequently for the past year, and no paint loss. And it often rides on the floor of the car right behind my seat so I can reach behind me and grab it. Maybe you use your camera more than you realize.
