4/3 Body Caps

I'm looking for two body caps - I'm missing mine from my E1 and E30 for some odd reason!

Does anyone have a couple for sale?

Re: 4/3 Body Caps

Genuine body caps often seem to be listed towards the tail end of Amazon, and 'generics' are usually on e-bay.

Body caps are of course standard to the lens mount, well worth having having a couple in the camera bag.

OM body caps sort of fit but don't force them on.

I've been using an OM body cap since dropping my E-3 cap on a shoot in a quarry and it rolled into a belt saw cut between two 15 ton blocks of marble.
It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

Luton Cameras advertise genuine Olympus ones for 5.00 each including postage. I don't know how that compares with other places.
