I have an Olympus PT-EP13 Underwater Housing for the Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II camera, and the housing has flooded 3 times. The first time I thought it was the Zen wide angle port, and put the stock port back on. Soaked the housing in water and dried the springs, buttons, etc. well. All good for 6 months, then another major housing flood. Soaked and dried again, this time taking off the tiny screws that hold the port glass and cleaning sand off the 2 glass O rings. All good for a couple dives, then small amounts of water intrusion while diving around 80 feet. Took the housing down without the camera after soaking and drying again- no water intrusion. Took it down again without the camera, and there was water intrusion when pushing the buttons. At this point, I don't trust the housing any longer. Olympus already doesn't make the housing any longer and no store carries it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I really don't want to buy another camera and housing set up, and am severely bummed. Thanks, Divingmama
I just bought a OM D5 MKII and PT EP-13 uw housing and am having a strange problem with the setup. When I use the kit 14-42mm lens and the EP 02 zoom ring, it all works on the surface to about 30', then the zoom stops working. It's purely mechanical, I can feel the zoom knob gear popping between the teeth of the lens gear. Coming back up makes the problem go away. It looks like a housing problem. I'm going to contact Olympus, but I wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem. I tried 3 different zoom rings, all with the same result. I just started a week long dive trip, needless to say I'm annoyed.
