Pen-F half cases....no more due in according to Bristol cameras.

I've ordered a cheapy from Amazon.

If anybody knows of one in stock anywhere I'd like to know please, I'm not on eBay.

If you've bought a non-Olympus half case, you might find it more convenient than the genuine Oly one, as their own model doesn't have access to the battery/SD card compartment, whilst many third party copies have an opening flap on the underside.

I bought this one for my Pen-F (now sold).
Very nicely made genuine leather and more flexible than the Olympus OEM part due to the battery access.

That's the one I have. It's a very nice case actually. I seem to remember paying 10 for mine though - maybe the good news about its quality has got out!

Re: Oly sold out of.......

I have one of those cheapo ones too. The only issue I've had with it is the tripod bush insert can unscrew itself and fall out so make sure you tighten it well. It really needs a circlip or something on the thread to prevent that happening.

That one's very cheap Paul, I think I paid over a tenner for mine. It would be nice to have a matching piece for the front of the camera too though as it doesn't offer much protection as it is.
