LOL...Pen-F Decoration Kit.

Whatever next. :eek

http://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/c...kit/index.html

Who am I to knock the Pen-F, but while I'm at it

These are Amazon prices....

Pen-F+17mm, 1199.
E-M1+12-40, 1233.

Just 34 more, I know which I'd sooner have.

Hmmm, a bloodwood hotshoe cover. I don't know how much they cost but at the rate they get lost they should be a nice little earner for Olympus.

More 'interesting' items here.

Re: LOL...Pen-F Decoration Kit.

I feel some DiY coming on... B&Q laminate samples may soon become hotshot covers:

Made to order 35 inc P&P.

I'm not sure they'd be 'blingy' enough for the fashion accessory. They need to be gold plated with crystal glass embellishments.

You could always wear the 'Old School Tie' instead to meet the girl with the fashion Oly Pen F bag

So do I .... the Pen-F EVERY time, well maybe not quite "every" as there are times when the weather sealing of the em-1 & 12/40 would be useful. The Pen-F ticks almost all boxes for me, simply gorgeous design and a super performer too, for someone ( me ) who's still stuck in the sixties and loves shooting with my 1969 Leica M4, a roll or two of Tri X and 'Sunny 16' for metering I guess that will come as no surprise.

Kind regards, Simon

Yes you can Dave, you just unscrew the soft release, pop it in your pocket, and screw in the cable one.

Kind regards, Simon

No point in buying the soft release then. I would probably lose it anyway!
