<<<I suspect that you have been the victim of mistaken literalism. My 
understanding of Mike's use of "smell" was not literal, but metaphoric.

Yes, metaphoric.  Sorry to mislead ---and appreciate the responses.  the cam 
was not powered on for more than a few minutes except for a firmware update 
which did nothing for the problem.  The grayed out 15% did flicker on and was OK
for a few power cycles, then just stayed grayed out.    If it is only a loose 
cable, I am not inclined to get the extended  warranty.  They may not even say. 
 Panny was very cryptic despite multiple inquiries as to the exact issue with 
the GM-5,
Just gave me the price to replace sensor, take it or leave it.   I wonder if a 
serious early defect despite light use implies a general manufacturing issue 
with this particular cam? 

Not only that but your sensor is probably not truly parallel to the lens 
mount---if one is a pixel peeper as required for large astro prints:


The lens decentering issue is waay more obvious than the sensor issue. Better 
QA is clearly required with these huge megapickel cams.
