.....that is really sassy looking.

I think a Domke 1" Gripper strap would look good on that. I have a black 1" and a tan 1 1/2", I use the 1 1/2" mostly since I use the FT lenses almost always, but the 1" gripper is really nice. I like that the snap swivels keep the strap straight always and make for the quick change out between the straps.

Why did I know I would be seeing pics from Greg of the new hood today. Definitely impressive for it's size.

The EPx are certainly good looking cameras. If the EP1 did not have all the limitations it has, I'd probably have kept mine forever!

Nice looking outfit Greg. However, in looking at the lenshood, I keep seeing "$$$$$" engraved in the surface. LOL

It certainly should at $89. It's definitely not the typical plastic affair. Reminds me very much of the expensive, often hard to find original chrome hoods Leica made for the screw mount lenses that can cause eBay bidding wars the last hour of any auction. High quality materials, and the clamping mechanism definitely locks it on firmly. With the Domke bag I am using I can store the lens on the body with the hood kept in place or the lens in it's own slot with the hood in shooting position. The area inside the hood is wide enough to allow the lens cap to be taken on or off without removing the hood so it's clamped on for good as shown above.

The one thing out of place is, one of the bottom side of the hood it says "China".
