    I've got an original one in red, no slider. They fit directly onto the lugs and you need to remove the triangles first.

    Here's a shot of my E-M5 with the strap. I did this as a bit of a joke for the M43 porn thread, hence the totally ridiculous combination of full grip and bodycap lens. You can see the attachment to the camera reasonably clearly.

    I got the black Easy Slider on my E-M5. I'm quite happy with it. Love it how it extends with just one hand when needed.

    On the negative side, the strap itself feels a bit cheap and plasticky. Wish it had a quick release instead of the old and slow traditional attachment.

    However, it's small and light, disappears easily in to the pocket with your camera when needed. The red logo goes away when you just turn around the strap around your neck. The fact that it's length can be adjusted in seconds is quite amazing.
