I shall add something too. I notice a hot pixel at near the top right corner and a bright pixel somewhere near the middle. These appear on every picture, particularly bad in low light conditions. Such defects on the sensor are eventualities, and thankfully olympus has a built-in pixel remapping function, but for an advertised brand new camera, I don't think this should happen. So maybe all our cameras do come with defects/used, that's why the pricing is quite low. I won't be requesting a refund for this drop, too much trouble, plus I'm actually quite happy with the camera. Looks awesome and really respectable image quality. For future buyers, please take note of what you are getting yourself into. And lastly for massdrop, do kindly reflect on this false advertising, do try to uphold the reputation you have painstakingly earned

ZQow, I don't think that cameras on this drop was some kind of really defected. In my opinion it was a stores cleaning - all this 20 cameras was an live example units in different stores. So someone got fingerprints or any another small artefacts, that does not reduce quality of the camera or images.
I'm pretty happy with mine, but as for gift for somebody - not this time. And the fact, that cameras was new, but opened - definitely should be in description. Especially if someone buy it for a gift.
I also got a one green hot pixel in centre (fixed with pixel remapping). Also after some long series (20-40 shots) with long exposure many temporarily hot pixel shows up. But also magically disappear after stop shooting for about a minute. And this is also isn't a failure - just a sensor overheating.
Anyway - I share your feelings and happy with my unit too. :)

Perhaps defective was too strong a word to use. And I believe your explanation of the cameras being live examples is certainly plausible, that explains the shutter count, finger prints, scuff marks. Maybe even the hot pixels as the store noticed them and made them test cameras instead of disappointing customers.
Ultimately we do all have different expectations I guess. I do not like receiving something I did not pay for, a good price doesn't justify anything. Furthermore if it's not bnib, I can actually get it for the same price in singapore.
It would be good for massdrop to explore this case of miscommunication. Maybe even give a statement here. Don't worry I won't be asking for a refund :)
Btw thanks for that Amazon link, I bought 1 for myself too :) currently looking for a good deal on a prime lens (50mm equivalent).

And My 5 cents to discussion about new/used bodies. Mine got about 320 shots and no any visual defects. Also in the box I found an SD card with about 30 shots. :) Thank You, Secret Santa!!! ;) So it in my eyes it was new but opened and tested.
But you know, last evening when all was charged, pumped and configured, I shot about 600 shots only while playing with camera. Burst mode really hungry eats shots count! :) Anyway - I'm happy with this camera!
P.S. This January 2016, 40-150/4-5.6 zoom from Olympus only $99!!! Check it out on Amazon or Olympus store! US Only, but Amazon ships worldwide. What a great surprise for every newcomer! :D

Got notification from local post office - additional 69.25 Euro (~75 USD) for VAT. :( Till the last moment I hope that this drop will be delivered without any additional payments. But anyway, 400 EUR in total are still much lower than ~700 in local shops. :)

I have yet to receive my order, but if what you said is true, this will be my first and last time purchasing from massdrop. I just cancelled my order for the fjallraven bag, luckily still had the time to.

Beware - I received my camera today. It is used (or notably shop-worn) merchandise. Most accessories appear new but body is scuffed, bears a worn price tag ("4,999.00"), and is accompanied by the wrong model battery charger. I've contacted Massdrop to see if they'll do anything about it.

My son also ordered one of these cameras from Massdrop. Although it showed some handling (a fingerprint on the lens), its shutter count was only 60 so he considered it new and kept it. I decided to return my package and Massdrop immediately refunded the price including tax and shipping via PayPal and sent me a paid return label. So although I am disappointed with the purchase, I am satisfied with the way Massdrop resolved the situation.

See my complaint on this list. Support just said "Contact the manufacturer." But the charger is the wrong item and the camera is used or shop-worn. Will Massdrop do anything to make me whole?

Hey Massdrop, Can you tee this one up again but with the 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 lens? This camera is very well sealed against the elements...but not with the 14-42mm lens it isn't! Thanks.
