  • Wood you have believed it?

    I recently learned that the Olympus Pen E-P5 option of a factory-fitted polished wooden hand grip was taken up by 30% of customers who pre-ordered the E-P5 in Japan.

      My first thought was that they must be barking mad in Japan, but if that's what they want then fine, it just goes against the grain as far as I'm concerned. Mind you, full marks to Olympus for branching out into something new and maybe it is time I turned over a new leaf and spruced my camera up a bit!

          I dunno! This all a bit against the grain of a real photog though.

            Isn't it nice that Oly offered a new leaf in the options department :-)

                  They are probably produced in an offshoot factory by a splinter group.

                          Nevertheless it's good to see Olympus branching out. Would servicing be required by a tree surgeon?

                            I seem to recall users having an allergic reaction to the chemicals in some of their grips.

                            I wonder if these would sap your strength...

                              It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
