    Hi all,

    Does anybody here use an Arca Swiss-compatible tripod system with an Olympus E-PL2? I can't find any quick-release plates specifically for this camera, although there are some that are advertised as fitting the E-PL1. Anybody know if the tripod plates for the other PENs will fit? (Acratech make one that claims to fit the E-P1, E-P2, E-P2 and E-PL1. Kirk make one that claims to fit the E-P1 and E-P2. RRS's website is down at the moment...)

    I have a hard copy of RSS's latest catalog and they don't list a plate for the e-pl2.

    Glad you point this out as I hadn't thought of that. Almost bought the RRR base plate, which covers the entire bottom of the E-PX series cameras. While the RRR looks nice, I don't think it's worth $30 more than the Acratech.

    On the GF-1 & G2 bodies if you want to use a fat lens and be able to access the battery/sd card hatch a small plate is necessary. Assuming the Olys are similar in dimension. Have been using an Arca-Swiss style small (38 x38mm) Benro qr plate. ~$14. Solid chunk of anodized aluminum. Last source was Adorama. Once in a while available on eBay. Model PU-40. Amazon retailer is pricey at ~$27. RRS Bpns model is 38 x 38mm.
