Description: Olympus OM-D E-M5 has lots of life left with fewer than 5,000 shutter actuations. Comes with all of the original accessories: LM-FL2 external flash with fabric case, AC charger, non-OEM (Progo) battery, cables, neck strap, user manual, CD, warranty card, etc. The original hot shoe cover has been replaced by a rubber one with a bubble level. I'll even throw in a small SD card, so it's ready to go straight out of the box.

Camera shows little sign of use and no signs of abuse. Everything works great. The only "defect" is that I think the shutter button originally had a plastic (or metal?) cap on it which has come off. This doesn't affect the function. In fact, having the rubber (or whatever it is) cover exposed makes the button a bit more grippy, which I saw as a positive. YMMV on that, but you can see what it looks like in the closeup photo.

One weak point of the E-M5 design is that the eye-cup tends to fall off. After having this happen once too often at inconvenient times, I ordered a number of spares. Two of these (part number EP-10) are included as insurance against this eventuality.

The RRS baseplate (and especially the grip) transformed this camera to me as it made it much easier to hold one-handed, especially with a heavier or longer lens attached. Both the grip and the L-bracket can be removed independently if you want to use the base plate alone or with either or both add-ons.

Priced at the lower end of recent sales and cheaper than what they're going for on KEH/MPB.
