Yes, it's for the E-620/600. Whether it's a good buy depends on if you like grips!

There probably isn't a lot of demand for new grips for the e-620/600. This seller has 10 in stock...

They seem to have some very cheap stuff

I have checked another dealer and it is pretty cheap there too (in comparison with the list price). It probably counts as stock that is unlikely to sell at anywhere near the recommended price -- hence sell it cheap and get some money for it. The stock level is now down to 9.

You can't go wrong at that price.

Stephen, you forgot the reason some people like battery grips, it makes the camera bigger and therefore more professional.

Yes and it's actually showing as "In Stock".
I bought mine this way, can't go wrong.
