  • Battery grip

    Anyone got a Battery Grip etc. for an E520.

    I've followed the web-search links to 3 or 4 suppliers - they all draw a blank.

    HELP......

    I don't believe Olympus ever made a battery grip for the E-520. There is/was one made by third party supplier Ownuser so you might find one on E-bay.

    Regards.

    she looked at me and said "It's official. I hate your camera. It's just so amazing and perfect I want one!"

    E-M10 MK II, E-M5, E-PL1, E-PM2, mZ 12-50, mZ 14-42mm EZ, mZ 17mm f 1.8, mZ 25mm f1.8, mZ 45mm f1.8, mZ 75-300mm II.

      Peter is correct, there isn't an OEM battery grip for the E-5x0 bodies, only an after-market version from Ownuser.

              Yes, you have to contact their head office - I e-mailed them with my plea and got a prompt reply - from their MD

                Thats where I have tried in the past, it's always said out of stock, as it is again at the moment. It is also showing it at $159US, which is a bit more than you paid!

                Cheers anyway, i'll just have to keep looking and hoping!

                  Thanks for the heads up, I have the ownuser grip for my e500, and think it's great for improving the balance of the camera with bigger lenses, but I have always been fooled by the out of stock on their website for the e510/520 one.

                  Cheers,

                  Ralph.
