Re: Keep my E-5 & strap in a pouch

My  E5 plastic buckles are the same as those on my E510, however, the E510 is not nearly as heavy and is likely to be used with lenses that are not as heavy as those typically used with the E5.  I have never had a problem with either, however, I typically carry the camera with my hand and have the strap simply as protection against dropping the camera.  After reading this forum, I replaced them with the metal buckles off the case for my old SLR Tokina 2.8 60-120 lens case.  Didn't really need to carry that lens anymore.
