    Why complain about it and bother to reply if the topic is not for you?

    Why can't I have a say if I have an opposing opinion?

    Just imagine how irritating every thread would be if a couple hundred people chimed in to say they didn't like the thread. The proper thing to do is to ignore the thread and find something you do like. Positivity makes for better reading.

    The variety of photos in this short 3 page thread (so far) show a ton more diversity than I could find in a simple Google image search and I want to see photos as owners see them in their own environments....not sterile shots in white boxes.

    I was principally interested in the age old black vs. silver dilemma, but seeing them with different lenses and optional accessories helps to form an opinion. Spending a few thousand dollars on a camera kit is a pretty major expense and it's nice to get some input.

    Sorry if it's of no use to you. :drinks:

    Stonetape72: Your shots of the Samyang fish should be used on their website - I've tested the lens in the store but only focused on how it shot and how it felt, not how apparently sexy it looks.

    Freaking nice shots man.

    I wish I had another OM-D to shoot my OM-D:biggrin: I bought a Pelican 1120 thinking it would be big enough to put the OM-D and the lenses to achieve the look TDP has. But alas it wasn't quite big enough. I have a HLD-6 on its way!
    I appreciate this thread, it allows ppl to showcase their tools. Gives other ppl ideas on different accessories...for example I like that red button jon595 has. I also like that slotted hood that metalbernd has...I've seen this hood on Amazon but didn't think it would look right until seeing his OM-D

    Does anyone here have a nice camera clip on strap they can recommend?

    btango05: I took my EM5 with me to the store when I bought my hard case, I wanted something to hold the EM5 with a mounted lens plus one other lens. The HPRC 2200 fit the bill. The store also had some Pelican cases but all of them were too big (I know Pelican makes smaller ones, it is just the store didn't have them). I think the HPRCs are a bit lighter when empty.

    When it came time to pluck away I fitted my longest/fattest lens (Voigtlander 17.5) so no matter what lens I might have mounted, it should fit. The internal and external dimensions are listed here (H P R C | HPRC 2200), if you find a Pelican about the same size it should work.

    No, this style of Gariz soft release button uses a double sided 3M tape. Before I put it on, I wiped the shutter button down with an alcohol wipe, let it dry and then pressed and held the button on for a minute. I let it set for a few minutes and it's been stuck on there ever since.

    I've heard other people say that the buttons come off rather easily if you push down on one edge and push a thin plastic edged something in there and lift.

    Thanks for the info! You think it has enough height with a HLD-6 battery grip installed?
