Looks nice, is this the start of one of those cryptic ad campaigns which start out really abstract and then become part of the furniture - Nescafé Gold Blend Part Deux?

I am quite bemused by the accessory handle thing, no offence bI 1978

It seems to me that there is some sort of fashion habit at work here. My daughter always adds a big grip and battery to her SLRs as well. Just how big do cameras need to be?

I have largish hands (the hands of a 190 cm bloke with size 12 and a bit feet) and I bought my OM-D because it was light and compact, and despite the reviews which talk about how awkward it to use or hold, find it quite comfortable. It is what it is.

Why then (and this is a genuine question not a cynical barb!) notwithstanding those with physical injury or illness that affects grip, do people want to make it bigger and heavier?

What are the advantages of having a large, heavy m4/3 camera that is the size of a SLR and almost as heavy but isn't a SLR?

If you want something that walks like a duck, why don't you get a duck in the first place?

Cheers,
P :D

For me (big hands) while the E-PL5 is an absolute delight and works well for me in landscape mode, if I want to use it for a lot of portraits, then a portrait grip is of real value, which is why I made my own, with the extra focus/shutter buttons.

The one featured here is simply an ergonomic grip, that may appeal to some but without the features of the Olympus Grip, the market for this will, I expect, be quite limited.

OM-D owners, does your tiny one make you feel inadequate? If so buy one of these to make it bigger, guaranteed to satisfy your subjects.

Surely not! One post and the same one on every forum on the internet? What made you think that?:p

New to this after a while but it looks real enough to me - if you're ever stopping by Heathrow or Stansted in London bring one with you and I'll take a look.

An interesting design with several innovative features by the look of the detailed photo's.

However the English descriptions of those details give a very negative feeling indeed.

If only the web-site offered more price, purchasing and delivery information!

I like spam if it is well presented on the plate, with a tasty price tag and from a trusted chef!

Certainly looks a well-designed and made product, but I'm not sure about the marketing!

More 'market' than 'marketing' I would say.
An introduction and explanation would have been nice *yes

Spammy the Spamster spammed other sites. His spam on 4/3 User had curled and dried out long before he served his portion here.
