Olympus has developed a new on-strap eye-piece cover that also stores the flash hot shoe cover when a flash is attached to the camera.

Good idea, but it looks like you have to take off the rubber eyepiece to use it, so where do you store that?

Good point! But I suppose the hot shoe cover is easier to lose...

But certainly less useful to keep!

Common sense would put a slot for the hot shoe cover on the body of the flash.

(or just leave it in the bottom of the camera bag - where mine has been ever since it fell out.)

Now that's a good idea :)

Good idea - I wonder if it fits straps other than the standard Olys... The key question is obviously "How Much?" !!

By the way, does it come with a hot shoe cover? Mine went to join the odd socks and ballpoint pen caps some time ago...

inside the bag/case that comes with the FL36 & 50 is a little pocket where you can put you shoe cover and forget it :)
