    Got my new E-M5 Friday and love it over my older GF-1. Has anyone seen a decent half case for the E-M5? Also any suggestion for a screen protector for the LCD? Has a hard glass one for the GF-1 but with the touch screen no idea if they make something similar for the E-M5.

    Thanks

    Yes.. I still have that saran wrap protector on that is peeling off fast..LOL I would like to have a screen protector, but something very thin.. otherwise I will pass... I think I will try a glass protector made by 3M.. very, very thin and easily removable.. I have it on my car windows.. I will just get the untinted version and have the glass shop slap it on.. it will probably be the smallest job they ever have done.. :smile:

    Still waiting for my OM-D but been doing some research what screen protector to use.
    Found some in Amazon last week .

    1st is a japanese product : " Micro Solution Digital Camera Anti-Reflection Anti-Fingerprint HD Display Protection Film (Pro Guard ARSH) for Olympus OM-D E-M5 // DCDPF-PGOLYMOMDEM-A " by micro solution of japan

    2nd is under a brand " Vikuiti "

    I might get the 1st one once I get my hands on my OLY

    Just go to your local Cell Phone store and buy the 3 pack of the biggest screen protector they have and cut to size or you might get lucky and find a real good match. I have done this to all my bodies and they work great. The nice part is that the Phone SP are for touch screens so you will be good to go

    Ah- I should have looked through the posts before posting my gariz half case post:

    etc : XS-CHEM5BK »óÇ° »ó¼¼º¸±â

    I don't know when that will be available "for the masses" on the e-bay, but I've always liked Gariz products.

    Like others said- just use the generic screen protectors, that should do just fine ans ave you some mark up on the price :wink:

    Anyone know why the Gariz case doesn't go all the way up the body? I know Gariz, and I know they do good work, but the case just sortof looks like it was made for a smaller camera (even though I'm sure it's not). Weird.

    Maybe because of the tilting screen??..
    Im sure there were other cases that will come out once the e-m5s are in the hands of masses.

    It's a sweet looking case. Looks great with the black.
    May I ask how much it cost?

    According to the site (and google translate) it's 95,000 Won, which is (also according to google) $83.48 USD. The only time I've ever bought their products though are through E-Bay sellers, the past cases have been $90-110 USD depending on model etc.

    I myself would *really* like a aki asahi case :smile:

    Ummm, if you guys haven't realized, the EP3 screen protector fits perfectly.
