    Olympus EP-2 Leatherette Skin?

    Is anyone using the 3rd party Leatherette Skin (SGP, etc.) on their EP-2? If you do, how do you like using it? Does it look decent and improve the handling of the body? Is it difficult to install? Can it be removed, with no after effects?

    Thanks,

    Rick

    I used black leather on my E-P1 and it was fine. I got it from Aki Asahi, but he seems to be on vacation now. So I have ordered a kit from ebay seller Evernjoy for my E-P2 which is getting heavily scratched.
    To my mind the leather kits improve the look of the camera and definitely improve the handling. I have never tried to get one off the camera, but on the Aki site you can see a video of it being done

    I've now put on a leather skin, obtained from ebay seller evernjoy

    Here is a pic of the scratches I was gettin with minimal use


    and here is the camera with the new skins - it feels much better in operation


    The photo of the leather conversion doesn't convey how good the camera looks with black leather - highly recommended
