    Recently bought a GF2 with 14mm 2.5 for a blowout price and really enjoy it. I picked up the EVF fromt he classifieds and works great. I am excited to be receiving a few Gariz items within the next week. I bought:

    Gariz Leather half case for GF2 in brown
    Gariz Leather wrist strap in brown
    Gariz Leather cap sticker in black

    Hope they are a nice in real life as in the seller pics. Anyone have any of their stuff they can comment about?

    I'm also courious about those products, as they look very very nice in the pictures, but spending 1/4+ the price of the camera for a half case and strap drives me crazy :biggrin:

    I'm not sure about what I'll do, so I'm very interested too :thumbup:

    I have a Gariz case for the E-P3, and it's one of the nicest cases I've ever owned. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

    I bought two Gariz wrist straps. One was padded synthetic material and worked well. I was impressed.

    The other claimed to be "real leather" but I doubt it has ever seen a cow. It is cheap and plasticky in black with red stitching and a rather nice chrome ring embossed with "Gariz". I hate it. :confused:

    I've owned two Gariz half cases - GF2 and EPM1 and both have been beautiful cases. They're compact and don't add a ton of bulk to the camera - easy to take on and off - like the tripod mount and the gun shot hardware too. Not the cheapest case, but one of the nicest I've owned and I'm a bit of a bag and case freak, so have had my share of different ones.

    i have a lens cap keeper from them...

    i still find it (mildly) funny that they would name their camera accessory stuff "gariz"....or "garish".....:biggrin:

    The name is a play on "Gary's". The business owner is called Gary.
