2.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not great, April 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Eynpire Camera Leather Case for Olympus E-PL1 E-PL 1 EPL E-P1 E-P2 Camera (Electronics)
I have had other cases for my Pen PM1 that I loved! but this one not so much. On my EPL1 it just doesn't fit that snug around the body, and too snug on the lens. Overall I like my camera better with it than without it, but am thinking about returning it and looking more.

With the 14-42mm kit lens, whenever I pull the case off the lens cap is pulled off too. I thought I lost the cap in a restaurant today but luckily looked under the table and saw the cap had fell under my feet without me noticing. It has happened several other times that either the cap is left behind in the leather case, or else it springs out when I pull the case off. Maybe I'll get the feel of a method to remove the case that doesn't cause this problem.

Secondly the case isn't very form fit to the body. Like pictures show, there is a big gap on the side if you're using the EPL1. Not pretty and not as solid as I'd like.

I like this one: look on ebay for the "Olympus PM1 case F62"
Don't see it on amazon.
