Yes it's the hld-8g without the battery section. It obviously adds the bulk of the hand grip, with the benefit of a working button/dial, but only adds about 1cm to the height of the body. Weight wise, I don't know exact grams but it's too too much at all.

I've just taken the grip off the body, and tried it with the 12-40mm, yes it is usable, but I'm not sure i'd want to use it for long like that. It's just no way near as comfortable, and I think I'd end up with achey fingers if I used it all day like that.
