    I found at the Olympus website this case CS-42SF, it's seems to be good quality and perfect fit, but a little expensive, any other options?, thanks

    When you take the EM1 out, what would you do with the case? It doesn't have a strap!

    They designed it as an attachment to their large case, but by itself, it seems to not have a way to be carried once you take your camera out!

    Agree. IMO, it would be a good option if it had its own strap.

    I thought you were about to make an argument for why this was a good combo. :)

    I haven't looked into this much, but I used to own a Kata bag. It was very well made, and they make shoulder bags for small camera setups. Based on my previous experience I wouldn't hesitate trying them again.


    They have some on Amazon for $36. I think I might go to my local camera store later this week and see if they have them in stock to make sure my lenses fit (75mm 1.8 and 12-40). This looks like a good option for this camera, and I like the option to use a belt loop or a strap.
