How much for the fisheye and dome port?

If you aren't going to change the port, then I wouldn't take a port off. If you know it's dry and seals well, all you would do is open it up to future failure from a careless O-ring cleaning. You don't periodically pull out O-rings from buttons do you? Same concept there.

I leave the port on, but that's because I only have 1 port that works for all 3 of my lenses. 

 

Short one closest to the camera. With the long one closest, you can't get the strobe as close in when taking macro shots. Also, since the mounting points are raised up, if you put the shorter one first, then you can have the strobe rest on the ground when the camera is set down.

It probably depends on how often you dive. I have been diving on average at least every other week lately, so I leave everything assembled. Just swap out batteries.

It's a common issue with the E-M1's. Caused by sunlight in the EVF. If you have had the camera with the eyepiece facing the bright sunlight, especially with the diopter turned up, that causes it.

Since it's a known problem, I'd see if Olympus would be willing to still fix it under good-will warranty.
