    Hi All,
    New member here and glad I discovered the forum which has a wealth of info.
    As a potential E-P2 buyer upgrading from an E-P1 purely so I can use the VF-2 EVF I have a query.
    I know the E-P2 is available in black with a black grip and silver with a black grip, but can anyone tell me if it's available as a silver body with a tan grip similar to the E-P1 white body/tan grip?
    I ask as I've noticed some websites shows pics of it with what appears to be a tan grip.
    Many thanks.

    You mean like this?

    Given that I only see it from overseas eBay sellers, that could mean it's not a North American color, but I really haven't been following this model as it doesn't come in Deirdre colors. :)

    I see many "add-on"-s here in Japan, but not standard like Pentax K-x, but I also didn't look that close into Olympus (also very "hot" here in Japan).

    Look here for grip and body colors: (besides Red, White and Black you pay significant premium (might change is K-x gets replaced by newer version))

    100x color combinations
    Enjoy!!!

    The K-x choices are overwhelming for someone like me. I want one of each!

    For the EP-2, though, it seems that there's only the three: black, silver and black, silver and tan.

    For that reason alone, I'd go for the EPL-1 (to get the blue).

    Hello and welcome JayCee - I prefer black on black but I do have a fancy case for the E-P2.

    That's the one.
    That's the one I want :smile:
    Any stockists in the US?, I'm going to Florida on my hols in a few weeks and would like to pick one up there.
    Thanks for the info.

    Definitely considering getting one for my E-PL1. My only concern is that it would start to come off at the edges after a while.

    I'd get the white one if it made the grip white too:)

    Worst case scenario, it falls off someday LOL...
