Swarovski glamorizes the Olympus Pen E-P1

You'll either love it or hate it, but Swarovski has taken the Olympus Pen E-P1 and bejeweled it with their traditional crystal gems.Spreading tiny gems all over a camera isn't exactly traditional (it sounds like a kid putting stickers all over a camera), but the jewels combined with the already retro-look of the E-P1 is downright bizarre.

Spreading tiny gems all over a camera isn't exactly traditional (it sounds like a kid putting stickers all over a camera), but the jewels combined with the already retro-look of the E-P1 is downright bizarre. I think this look would work for certain personalities, and it's actually kinda cute, in a kitchy way. (Although not everyone likes it.) And it's definitely something you shouldn't do to a professional camera.

But with the £1,999/$3,300 price tag, it's no toy. A regular Pen E-P1 is more than half that price. It also won't be easy to get your hands on, as it's only available at Harrods' Micro Anvika department in the UK.

What do you think of the flashy look on this camera?
