Looks like a design flaw in the ECG‑2 Camera Grip not leaving room for the cable release. I will have to consider going back to my Nikon for serious landscape work which is a shame as I was close to selling my Nikon and moving 100% over to my E-M5 mk II.
Maybe not so much as a design flaw but a limitation with certain options. With a compact designed body there has to be some compromises with placement of components around the camera. You could use your smart phone (or tablet) with WiFi if you want to remotely trigger it. You even get to choose the focus spot without touching the camera.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
