A premium product like the Olympus PEN E-P5 deserves only the very best when it comes to accessories and a new range of genuine leather products from Olympus are no exception.
The Premium Series consists of a camera bag, body jacket and neck strap all crafted from high grade soft leather that compliments the design, and quality, of the E-P5 perfectly.
Premium Leather Camera Bag (CBG-9 PR)
The Premium Leather Camera Bag effectively combines traditional craftsmanship with modern comfort and usability. Made from high quality leather, wonderfully soft to the touch, this bag stands out from the ordinary. It perfectly fits an Olympus E-P5 with a Micro Four Thirds lens attached. The removable inner pocket holds the camera and accessories in place and movable spacers allow the inner pockets to be arranged to suit individual needs. The bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap to perfectly fit the wearer's body when worn at an angle. For easy access to the camera, the bag has two zippers which open on both sides. Additional inner and outer pockets allow backup batteries and personal belongings to be carried too. This high quality camera bag will become a constant companion for any E-P5 owner.
Premium Leather Body Jacket (CS-41B PR) & Premium Leather Strap (CSS-S117L PR)
The Premium Leather series body jacket is made from the same high quality leather as the camera bag and fits the E-P5 like a glove. The body jacket protects the camera without sacrificing shooting comfort and usability - card and battery can easily be replaced with the jacket still attached to the camera. The body jacket can be combined with a matching long shoulder strap from the same Premium Leather series (sold separately).
The Premium Series leather accessories will be available from the end of August 2013 and have the following recommended prices:
Premium Leather Camera Bag: £349.99
Premium Leather Body Jacket: £129.99
Premium Leather Strap: £89.99
