    I would have sworn that there was a thread of this name, but I sure can't find it now, so I am starting one. Here is mine (and Mods, feel free to move mine if there is one that I couldn't find).

    These images were taken with my OM-D E-M5 but I am starting to love this little E-PL5 (originally planned as, and still may be, my back-up camera).

    Both of these are sharpened in PS/CS6, and I fiddled with the saturation and vibrance in ACR (used the ORF file) in this first one.

    P2180420c1_zps2d00f6d9.

    The little VF-2 is an AMAZING accessory!

    I didn't touch Sat/Vib in this second one.

    P2180421c1_zpsb3eab6e7.

    Oh, and I should probably mention the Panny 20 f/1.7 and the Tiffen filter for lens protection since I can't install the lens cap with that vented hood on it.

    Yeah, it does sound familiar, but here's mine again:

    Tiffen doesn't make great filters, unless you get the very top end. You might want to test some shots with the filter on and off and see what you think.

    For a lens cap, I recommend these: Panasonic 46mm Lens Cap for Lumix Lenses DMW LFC46GU | eBay

    I think I found a cheaper knock-off somewhere and I purchased like 3 of them. They fit the PL25, PL45, P20, P14, maybe also the P45-200, and perhaps others, and should fit into that hood (I know that's a P14 on there, but I used this hood interchangeably between the P14 and P20).

    That one you have would work well WT21. The one that I got with my 20mm has edge buttons and you can't get to those while inside the hood (but you may already be aware of that).

    My E-PL5

    First thing I did was to mount the larger grip. Now it feels very comfortable to hold the camera with the right hand.:2thumbs:
    I didn't like the plastic surface of the original grip, too slippery.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi
    Is the larger grip the same one as that for the E-P3 ?

    Where can I get a bigger grip ? The PL5 is too small for my hand.

    So if I want to use flash with an E-PL5 I have to take off the VF-2? That's a deal-killer for me.

    Yes,
    it is the MCG-2, I used it on my E-P3, now it's on my E-PL5.
    @Ddeveryday:
    Just google for it and you will find stores selling it.
