Does anyone have a source for the small protective caps that fit on the side of the camera. Also looking for a new MC-1 screen protector.
Any help appreciated......

I would think 'Luton Cameras' will be your best bet, phone them as they do not list on their website every Olympus part they stock.

Not quite sure what covers you are inquiring about, but these guys are the UK experts on older Oly cameras, and if they don't show what you want on their 'Spare parts' page I suggest you just give them a ring.

Agreed - Luton are good for this sort of stuff. They are not too good at responding to emails in my experience, but are very friendly and helpful on the phone.

.....still looking for one/two BLL1 batteries for the battery grip. Been quoted some huge prices. I remember you could buy them on ebay a few years back for around 12-15 pounds.

They had everything but the screen protector and at reasonable prices too. I managed to buy a single new original screen protector off ebay for just under 6 pounds! Always worth looking for these E-1 bits on there. Also bought an original E system neck strap for under 7 pounds If anyone is looking for an original BLL1 battery charger there is one listed at just under 17 pounds with free post...total bargain!
