Olympus OMD EM1 mk 1 shutter sticking

Hi everyone, just lately my camera has developed the (to put it mildly) annoying trait of the shutter sticking closed when it is cold. If I take the lens off, I can see the shutter is down over the sensor, which is normally exposed. It will take one picture, then lock up. Has anyone else experienced such an issue? It seems fine once I take it into an area with a warmer temperature. Cheers all, happy shooting

It means the sensor is cold so it shutters up. That what you get for shooting Olympus
