    for that price looks to be a value, only thing I see negative is that this design will not work with the larger grip

    please post a review once you receive it.

    That's a half-case? Looks like about a 1/10 case.

    IMHO, it looks silly and doesn't add anything functional (like protection or better grip). But I agree that if its not going to offer a grip of its own, it should be cut to allow for either of the Olympus grips to fit with it. But I'm sure some will like it so its good that its available... And the price definitely isn't bad.

    I have one made by Clay Smith.
    Virtually the same design.
    The only difference between it and the Gariz is that it leaves room for the grip.

    Does it fit the E-P1 as well or only the E-P3?

    This is specically for the E P3
    I have seen half cases for the E P1 and E P2 and have a Gariz on my E P2.
    The 1 and 2 are the same.

    Please do a review when you receive it! I'm looking for something like this with an opening for the battery and memory card. I see paint chipping away from my camera from setting it on hard surfaces too many times..

    Where Can I Get Clay Smith half case for E-P3?

    I have been looking high and low for a half case for my E-P3. I see that you and Amin Sabet purchased them. Do you or anyone else reading this post know where I can purchase one from a repudable vendor? Many thanks.
