The Leather Body Jacket (Brown) from Olympus provides a custom fit for the PEN Lite (E-PL5) & PEN Mini (E-PM2) cameras. The jacket attaches to the camera with a screw to ensure it continues to protect your camera at all times.
I have had this for a few months now. This item is exactly as described so I have no real problem with it but I can't give it 5 stars. I don't know what I expected but I find I leave it off often. It has to be removed to take out the battery for recharging or to access the chip. If you have a loose cover there or you accidently open it frequently then this would be great for you. I usually keep my camera in its big case or it is around my neck so it is not really that functional as a protective device for me. I do like it but for the money I am not sure it was a wise puchase. It has really minimal coverage but I guess it makes me feel like I have my old Minolta SRT-101 in my hands, only half the size!
Nicely-made body jacket of genuine leather. My major negative issue is the fit: body jacket doesn't extend to the back of the camera. Almost looks like it was designed for a camera body of lesser depth. There is no thumbwheel on the attaching screw, however it is slotted for a coin. Will afford some protection for the Olympus Pen E-PM2.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
