I do. Not just the grip, the whole larger size of the body means that I can't hold it comfortably. I also wouldn't be able to fit it into the bags I use these days and would feel all those extra grams when cycling up the hill to the rugby club!

I'm quite happy to carry on with the E-M1 Mk II (without grip - now that we have a decent battery power gauge I don't feel any need for it) for another year or so until the new tech percolates down into a smaller body.

It's a bit of a relief really. Normally going and handling a new model prompts a GAS attack. In this case it did the opposite.
