    Between my GF1 and EP2 debate, I'm keeping the EP2. Now, I want to know, what would you do, if you picked up an EP2 and then found out it was scratched (from strap clips) down the left side?

    It doesn't bother me TOO much, but it's there, so I was thinking one of two ways to cover it, and add protection. Either a skin, like the ones that aki-ashi provide, something bright and different (red maybe), or a half-case. Either one will protect the EP2's sides and cover the scratches.

    I haven't got a regular case for the EP2 yet, as there seems to be nothing official that isn't seemingly worthless (I'm looking at you, Pen Wrapping Case!), and the ebay ones might not cater to the 20mm pancake.

    So in your opinions, what would you do? Leave it? Skin it, or Half-case it?

    That's rather neat! I saw something similar on Ebay. Does it protect the camera well? I have no inserts for my bag, so I'm relying on cases for the moment.

    personally i think i'm going to go for a half case, just incase i want to upgrade, bit worried a skin might leave residue.

    This is the one I was looking at, it looks similar to yours?


    That's a point. I mean we all upgrade eventually, but I guess with these cameras, a leatherette skin is a nice focal point for a classic, and different camera?
