Was going to take the E-M1Mk111 for short spin today but noticed the left most 
15% of the LCD AND EVF were grey and hid image and info.
Lens or no lens did not make a difference as much as I could tell.  Power 
cycles, remove battery had no effect.  In lieu of factory reset in case of 
firmware corruption (did not seem likely as smelled like hardware) did a 
firmware update which had just been released---no effect.  Then with lens on 
the affected area began to flicker and then corrected itself.  The images were 
not affected but the usability of the cam was. I bet this cam has 500 
activations, if that, as all trips cancelled. 

Now what?   Send in for a ghost problem and have them send it back saying it is 
"fine" 5-6 weeks later?  Extend the warranty for another 2 years for 100 bucks 
for a company that is sold?  I suspect they will still honor the warranty, but 
who know.  Do nothing and hope for the best?  I am all ears.  

What now?  Mike
