    So after some moments of ridicules for having not so attractive attachments, it's only fair I give my e-p1 a fair treatment. It got leatheretted today.

    Maybe not the most practical, but I always considered the E-P1 to be the most attractive PEN body made. ;)  The extra attachments on the newer versions take away from the attractiveness in my opinion... but worth it for what they do.

    Yes, the leather does make it even more attractive though... as does the G.Zuiko lens! :thumbup:

    The E-p1 is a nice piece of design. Photography is a mixture of science and art. Why shouldn't our artistic sides appreciate the design of the camera, after all? Still waiting for the leatherette kit for my E-P2.

    Never really been a big fan of Olympus' stylings. This does help though:

    For some reason I find the red E-PL1 much more attractive.

    Pen F lenses are built for it.. I think it complements MFT quite well. It's certainly the right size... small and compact yet heavy and silky smooth focus ring.. I love em.

    IMO, little bit of silver trim on the top portion of the camera may make it look interesting.

    I still like the retro look of a leatheretted e-p1 & 2... or completely black.

    I like the red body ... I'll take two.
