Most are poor taste, but hey he is working with what he can get his hands on I guess.

But you gotta admire the craftsmanship. A brass sticker as substitute for thickness and cutaways are perfect.
I will buy it and use it as a matrix to make my own.

Black Lizard Emboss + black E-M5 = the bizness. What many of us have been waiting for...

Some of the other colors look quite sharp as well... too bad they don't sell matching wrist straps.

I bought his stuff before for some older camera...very reasonable price. Though I don't see the need for the omd. I'm not getting it.

who's getting the pentax yellow for their omd?

It's rather disappointing that they've yet to offer an eelskin motif for Alarmic to proudly wear.

What is the point of the black leatherette covering

and why are there 4 of them? It seems to identical to the covering the silver OM-D is fitted with at the factory.

Looks fun from the front, but it bothers me a little that there are accents on the back.

Liked those skins for the GF1
In reply to Trollshavethebestcandy, May 11, 2012

The leatherette skin for the GF1 was the best accessory for the camera, improved both the looks as well as the handling enormously. On the E-M5 I do not think it is as necessary.

The skin has been on for years, still looks great and sticks to the camera like on the first day.
