    EP3 leather kit makes a good looking camera even better

    Just added a leather kit to my silver EP3 and I think it took what already was a great looking camera up to another level of classic good looks.

    One of the best $23 I've spent on a photo accessory purchase

    I agree with you, it looks really great. But I've always refrained to dress my cameras with something you have to glue on : how will the camera look in a few months or in two years ? after it has been in the cold, in somewhat humid environments or in sweating hands ? will the leather cover begun to peel off ? and then will the shiny body under it still be intact ?

    So, yes, it is a very nice and good looking camera right now, it is among the prettiest I have seen, but how will it be after many uses ?

    Well given I can order another skin for $19 shipped, if at some point it does start to peel off or otherwise wear too much, then just pull it off and put a fresh one one, perhaps a different color of leather even next time and its as good as new again.

    Realistically I doubt I'll really be shooting it in 2 years as well. Hopefully by then Oly/Panny will have come out with a new RF styled body with built in EVF and a much updated sensor

    I asked my wife for permission to cut a leather strap from her Gucci handbag. Need it to build my own wrist strap. Boy, what a bad evening i had

    Gucci...what's the point of a bag if it won't hold a camera! ;-) (Yes, I'm a girl...
