It really is, in my opinion, just an added complication with no redeeming advantage.

Hi Nick,

I find that the extra depth provided by fitting the grip makes the handling of the camera easier (I cannot imagine using a Micro 4/3 camera!). The extra battery is also extremely useful. Having shot with the Bigma fitted late afternoon, it reminds me just how much the handling is improved with the grip.

Best Regards
