Ownuser/Gadget Infinity do one, sold primarily through eBay.

I've bought filters and a remote lead for the E510 from them without any problem. They're in Germany and you pay via Paypal in Euros.

People who have bought these seem to have a positive experience.

Is there a reason why Oly are not producing one.

I don't suppose there is much demand. Grips work well on the E1 but I have to say I find the E3 pretty good without its grip.

Thanks,

Thanks for posting your report on this grip. I may purchase one for my E500. The E3 Grip certainly added to the handling of the camera and it looks as though this grip wil do the same for the E500. I wonder though, why the USB port sticks out. Does this cause problems with the handling?

Cheers

Very little interferance, the only time I notice it is if I want to use the bottom button of the navigation keys (ISO) but that is all realy.

I have used the grip extensivly now, especially with the 50-200 lens as it improves the balance of the body, yes I would rather it did not need the USB connection but I can easily live with it.
