How do I feel about this Panasonic camera part fiasco? Will I buy another GH series camera in the future?

I already repaired a DMW-XLR1 sound adapter for a Lumix GH5, but I have held off on purchasing a new GH5 camera due to how Panasonic handles consumer spare parts.

It looks like the GH5 has it's own set of mechanical problems and still shares the same dial problem as the GH4 and GH3, so I think I'll hold out a little bit longer.

This repair will allow me to continue using my GH3 and GH4 cameras well into the foreseeable future and will enable more documentation of personal projects on ifixit and salvagedcircuitry.
