    For those who want a black E-P1...

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but I haven't seen it here. Now we have option of all black E-P1.

    I haven't tried it, but it looks promising.

    Ha! That looks great. Even more retro than the original. There's just so many creative people in the world.

    The only thing that makes me a bit iffy is how long will it remain glued on.

    Aki Asahi has made covers for a long time, I use them quite often on black painted Leicas. There is no worry about them coming off.

    I ordered two styles. I'll post here when I receive them, and show some photos.

    Actually, there are apparently more choices than black. If you go to Aki-Ashai main site http://www.aki-asahi.com/ there are apparently a number of colors... orange, red, blue, green, white and cherry wood. I don't know if these colors are just for Japan, but it certainly looks like you can dress your E-P1 pretty much any way you want. Also various leather cases here: http://blog.livedoor.jp/e_p1/archives/51252305.html Again, perhaps Japan only.

    This thing could turn into a cottage industry like fancy wheels for cars!

    I ordered one of the skins from these folks. The fit is precise and it looks terrific. it took a total of ten days from the time I ordered it until it arrived here in Denver.

    Should make it for the G1/GH1 for when the thin plastic skin peels off. Be hard though because the Olympus body is linear while the G1's is contoured.
