EM1 Hot Shoe Cover and the wee FL-LM2 flash in the box

Minor grumble only about the hot shoe cover. From a design point of view, a two piece cover that slips so easily on and off the hot shoe is bound to be lost at some time or another.

Please Olympus, could you please send all owners of the EM1 with a better designed one piece cover?

Also, surprise, surprise for users of FT lenses.

The wee flash FL-LM2 provided with the EM1 cannot realistically work with the bigger FT lenses.  With the 12-60 FT lens, the LM2 when the fl is less than 22mm (44mm in 35mm terms) there is the shadow of the lens barrel.

I guess, I'll have to lug my FL36 around! Please see below!

Not sure if anyone else has posted this little issue! Apologies if this is a repeated post.

All in 35mm terms, please!

At 24mm

At 36mm

At 42mm
