    Just wanted to start a thread that lists all accessories for the OMD EM5. Here's my list with links where I bought them:

    1) Gariz Half Case (Gariz Olympus E-M5 Genuine Leather Camera Case Black XS-CHEM5BK OM-D OMD EM5 NEW | eBay)

    2) Gariz Wrist strap (GARIZ Genuine Leather Wrist Strap Black XS-WSM1 m43 Sony NEX Olympus Lumix Fuji | eBay)

    3) Micro Solution Screen Protector (http://www.amazon.com/Micro-Solutio...ingerprint-DCDPF-PGOLYMOMDEM-A/dp/B007EZGOMC/)

    4) 3rd party BLN1 battery (3 x Battery for Olympus OM-D E-M5 EM5 BLN-1 BLN1 with Charger | eBay)

    List your accessories, so that people can have one thread to search what they need.

    btw, i just put the sticker over top of the original one, so i could peel it off no hassle later
    as opposed to pealing off the original, putting on the brass plates, and then layering on the new skin

    the orig skin already sticks out a TAD thicker than the plastic ridges on the top and bottom of it, and the aki skin is very thin, so its not like its making it suddenly CRAZY looking :)

    Do you happen to have a picture of this?

    I really like the look of those leather stickers, especially the black alligator look. But the peeling, gluing, etc kind of put me off haha

    If it's barely noticeable then I might just stick it on top of the original like you did :)

    The only thing I've purchased thus far is the larger eyecup, which I quite like...

    736410.

    Everything else I own is from my previous camera (Domke strap & bag, a few lens hoods, etc.)

    @Dane,

    Where did you buy the Olympus EP-11 eyecup from? ... looks like it is out of stock everywhere I looked (BH, Adorama etc.)

    I wonder if there are other cheap intervalometers for the em5?

    Just received it from B&H 2 days ago (maybe I bought the last one?)

    I'm sure it'll be back in stock again soon...I recall it was available for quite some time at B&H.

    Love the optional Eye Cup, makes a huge difference. Purchased from NewItemExpress in Hong Kong. $36.00 including shipping, well worth it.

    Filters! UV, circular polariser, ND8 (but wish I had variable one) and a warming filter (Most Hoya or Kenko from Eventcameras - eBay)
    Gorilla pod style tripod (eBay)
    Lens caps with tethers (eBay)

    Still on order:
    Spare battery
    Pixel wireless shutter release

    Seriously considering getting a JJC macro arm light - looks like a really practical device :)

    Has anyone got a Gariz soft release button for their OM-D? How is it?

    Ah yes, found the picture, I see that you went for the alligator look too haha nice choice!

    The picture doesn't really show how high the aki asahi skin sit on top of the original skin.

    If you don't mind, could you perhaps take a top view of the camera showing how the aki asahi skin is sticking to the original skin?

    Thanks heaps!! :smile::smile:

    The tiny pouch holds the spare battery, it even has slits in the back so you can mount it to a neck strap.
