The Olympus CS-38B (Black) is a leather body jacket that perfectly fits the design of the Olympus PEN E-PL5 & E-PM2 digital cameras and is securely fixed through a screw. It is tailor-made for the shape of the camera body, but goes with the design.

Protects the underside of the camera and a better grip. The bottom of this case is to thick and it covers the Battery/SD card slot. Have to be unscrewed to change either battery or SD card. Would be nice if it had a opening flap of some kind to make access to that slot without having to unscrew it from the camera.
This jacket is a nice way to protect and dress up your camera. Protects camera when set down on any surface from scratches and contaminents. Wish they made a attachment to cover standard lens
Especially for the cost (which at Adorama is slightly better than average) Olympus owners would be better served if the company made a jacket specific to each body style, rather than trying to make a one-size-fits-all product. I own a PEN Mini E-PM2 which is the same width across the base. The outline of the jacket bulges toward the back on the right side, presumably for a camera with a grip. Aesthetics aside, it looks like it doesn't fit. The worst part of this 'jacket' is the instability it creates. Because it is actually narrower than the base of MY camera and thick (~10mm or 2/3" high), it causes the camera to tilt forward rather jarringly when set on a flat surface, coming to rest on the front edge of the lens. Maybe it does provide some shock absorption for the camera body, but how good can it be for the lens to support the whole thing? Additionally, although it didn't cause me a problem, the battery compartment is not accessible with the jacket on. It did fit adequately, albeit not as securely, to a tripod, however.
