    Finally. I've been waiting for this. Is it gonna look good on black E-PM1? They only have sample photos of other colors..

    I can't wait to get one. Now my little mini will look a little like it's bigger brothers.

    I don't know if I like it. The E-PM1 doesn't have the retro lines like the E-P3 or E-PL2. It looks like you would just be putting a leatherette on a P&S camera.

    +1 that's the same reason why I went with a leather half case on my E-PL1. I would do the same with either the E-PL3 or E-PM1

    I think some colors will look great on a black PM1. The "deep red lizard" really catches my eye...

    Anyone been able to get a translated page for the check out form?

    Looks like they don't have non Japanese ordering set up yet. Also there is no leatherette version yet (that I could find).

    The link I provided should take you to page via Google translation - at the bottom is the order panel.... Or you could just do what half of us did for the Pen 3 - PayPal directly with copy and paste text in the comments field. I did this.

    Now I really want a M1 - I still haven't taken the training wheels of the P3 as I am new to all this but I do want.

    My next wonder is how would the third part grip sit on the leatherette?

    Haha, that's why I opted for a leather half case!

    Is the E-PL3 similar enough that this would work on it?

    Dang. I want it, but I've got a grip on there and I don't really want to sacrifice it for the leatherette.

    I think the leatherette should cover the whole front plate of the E-PM1. It would look better, similar to the GF2 leatherette.

    They almost need a colour matching tool for the leather and body.

    I have this irrational desire to put yellow leather on my black E-PM1 and rock the bumble-bee look . . .

    Looking good! DO WANT! There should be some good combos between the body colors and skin colors.
