Great results! Are there any reviews around on the Olympus housing? I might switch to the E-PL5 before going underwater and need a reliable housing for it( PT-EP10 ?) . Does this one have a double o-ring sealing?

As for the predecessor (pl3), the Nauticam PL3 housing seems a bit overpriced (1500EUR) - however, it has a deeper depth rating and it seems to be easier to change ports on the Nauticam one.

E-PL5 might have to use a new underwater housing.

The position of the controls look identical to me:

Pl3: http://common.ziffdavisinternet.com/util_get_image/26/0,1425,i=266457&sz=1,00.jpg

Pl5: http://www.photoxels.com/images/Olympus/e-pl5/olympus-epl5-s-ba-580.jpg

However, the pl5 is 1mm wider and deeper. I guess the chance, that one has an e-pl3 housing and a pl5 camera is pretty low...
