I wondered yesterday if someone produced a screw-on grip for the E-PL1 to give more stability when using larger FT lenses. Seems like a no-brainer to me?

All I could find was this DIY jobby:

But then there's the problem of the shutter button becoming unreachable and as the PL1 doesn't do remote shutter release a plug in 2nd shutter button, as in add-on 3rd party battery grips, that's no good either.

I know... when I want to use a big lens, I'll use a big body!

The 14-150 Leica is very similar in size to a 14-54 and is not unwieldy at all. It's a brilliant lens.
