HLD-8G Grip for the OM-D E-M5 II...Returned.

After having it for a couple of weeks I have returned it for a refund.

The 'grip' part I liked, it worked very well.

The parts I didn't like were the 'very' loose dial that moved to the slightest touch and having to remove the grip every time to change the battery.
There was also 'too' many dials in a line.

I'm sure for a few extra 's Olympus could have incorporated it into the body.

Anyone got any 'good' after-market ideas?
