    I try to always carry a camera with me, and prefer a belt attached case. This case finally enables me to carry my EP-1 + 20 mm Pan-lens with joy and ease. It's very well constructed with sturdy materials. The belt loop seems short and stiff enough to avoid the case to start "wiggling". It's actually very comfortable to wear. I'm thinking of taking the shoulder strap off my camera and maybe find a smaller hand-strap instead as the camera now will be either in the case or in my hand. The outside pouch is big enough for a spare battery and some SD cards.
    This is a must have for casual/daily use. As it makes carrying the camera so easy, I claim it even improves the camera's function :-)

    I thought this would be the perfect accessory to my new E-PL2, but I simply could not make the camera with attached kit lens fit inside the case without forcing it. I decided it wasn't worth it [...] because I didn't want to constantly shove the camera inside and scrape it against the zipper each time. Another half inch all the way around, and this would be a fine product. It did seem to be well constructed.

          I originally bought this for myself but ended up giving it as a gift to my friend.
          You never have enough cases. This one is perfect for his EPM1 with a small lens.
          I was planning to use it for my EPL1. It is also priced right!

            Comments about Olympus Pen Casual Case for E-P1, E-PL1 Pen Digital or SL1 Cameras:

            This is a tight squeeze for my Pen EPL-2 with 14-42 lens and a filter, but it does work. If it were 1/4" bigger, it would have gotten 5 stars from me (and I have to admit that I was tempted to give it 5 stars anyway!).

            I wanted a case that would protect my PEN, but that wasn't too big for me to carry around. I have other cases that work when I want to carry more accessories. This case will hold my camera (with attached lens), an extra memory card, and a spare battery which is exactly what I wanted!

                As most the reviews say it's a tight fit. Good! If I strap this to my belt and go hiking I don't want the camera flopping around. I want it secured. It has some limited storage so you can carry an extra battery and memory card. Well made and at this price point an outstanding value

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about Olympus Pen Casual Case for E-P1, E-PL1 Pen Digital or SL1 Cameras:

                    I've got bigger cases for when I want to take some lenses, flash, etc. with. But for my EPL1 and 14-42 with filter, it works fine when wanting to carry light. Since the camera's got to fit in sideways, any bigger lens wouldn't work. I can get two extra batteries, two extra cards in the mesh interior pocket (a tight fit) and the VF2 in the front. I also use a metal lens hood and run the main buckle through, so it carries a surprising amount of stuff. The newer 14-42 VII might be a slight bit longer, I'm not sure. This case should fit any with a 14-42 VI or shorter, such as the Panasonic 14mm,20mm or Olympus 17mm. It seems made very well for how reasonably priced it is, and makes a very small package out of an EPL1 with kit lens. They should have made it just a tad wider and maybe hogher, then it could have carried the camera in a down pointing fashion (holster style), giving some room for a bit wider and longer lens, and it wouldn't have noticeably increased the outside dimensions.

                          I bought this case to use with my new Olympus Pen EP-3. It is very small and cheap. However, the EP-3 with the kit lens (14-42) enter very tigh and you can not even use the pocket for a spare battery, otherwise the camera will not enter. It´s finishing is good, but I prefer the Lowepro or Kata standard.

                            Otherwise, it seems like a well made case, just not to PEN size...

                            The case seems to be well made, but contrary to representations, it really is too small for the Olympus e-pl2 with the 14-42mm attached. It's an extremely tight squeeze even without a filter on the lens, but with a filter it's impossible. I imagine that this is one reason most places (like B&H) no longer have it in stock.

                              I saw several reviewers say that this case was too small for the E-PL2 which made me a little nervous but I took a leap of faith and bought it anyway. I found that I have no problem with the fit of the case. With a filter attached to the lens it is a little snug but not enough to bother me - it still goes in and out of the case without much effort. The case itself itself is very nice in my opinion as long as you don't mind a snug fit.

                              The case fits the Olympus Pen EPL-1 pretty snugly with the 14-42mm lens. Definitely worth the money but a little on the small side.

                                    This case is offered as fitting the Olympus E-PL2 SLR, but it doesn't fit well at all. The case is a generic case. I ordered it over the internet assuming it was designed for the camera, but it doesn't so the money was wasted.

                                        I use this case for a EPL-2 equipped with the new standard kit lens. It does the job reasonably well but -as pointed out by other reviewers-the case could be a tad larger.

                                        Item used to house camera during transport in luggage or on my person
                                        Case is small [Great]
                                        Case is light [Great]
                                        Case just fits the Pen Camera
                                        Belt loop good feature
                                        Small zipper pocket holds perhaps 2 or 3 memory cards
                                        Two zippers and fold over cover and clasp easy to close
                                        If you want to use camera quickly, not a good choice, as must unclip, and unzip to gain access. For security in crowded places tight fit and two covers are good features.

                                          This is the solid case for the EP2 camera. The size is exactly fit the camera with a 14-42 zoom lens mounted. It is a little tight but a good fit. The materials is strong and the zipper at the cover helps preventing the dusts. The stripe is also strong and reasonable. I would suggest to change the plastic hook with some smaller metal rings to make it look nicer. There is a small bag attached to the cover from inside which is convenient to store additional battery or memory chips or cleaning cloths. I like the design so far.

                                          My camera fits very snuggly in this case. I added a uv filter and at first it seemed to tight, but now the bag seems to have stretched ever so slightly to fit. It is sturdy and has a nice long strap to drape across my torso from shoulder to hip so that I don't accidentally leave it somewhere like I did with a past camera and bag. I do wish that it had a bit more space and a larger pocket to hold money and credit card so that I don't need another bag.

                                          Case Can't fit E-PL2 with the 14-42 kit lens and a filter. Perhaps with out the filter it may fit, but will be tight. Fits with a pancake lens.
