ECG-4 Optional grip for the Pen F
 
I have ordered a Pen-F and thought will look at the optional ECG-4 grip, which some reviews said improves the handling balance. True to type, Olympus are asking 109.99 for the grip, which I think is way too high. Is it likely that a third-party like JJC or someone similar will soon release an 'alternative' grip at a more reasonable price?

Highly likely, considering it incorporates the "Arca-Swiss" mounting feature.

I'm considering some DiY to make one with a "Picatinny rail" mounting system... :cool:

I decided to buy the grip as when I tried the camera with grip it felt so much better balanced in my larger hands

Nice idea, you could start a specialist company making custom plates and brackets. You could call it something like Really Right Bits.
