Looks nice, is this the start of one of those cryptic ad campaigns which start out really abstract and then become part of the furniture - Nescafé Gold Blend Part Deux?

Re: Made and designed in Taiwan OMD Olympus E-M5 Exclusive Handle

I am quite bemused by the accessory handle thing, no offence bI 1978

It seems to me that there is some sort of fashion habit at work here. My daughter always adds a big grip and battery to her SLRs as well. Just how big do cameras need to be?

I have largish hands (the hands of a 190 cm bloke with size 12 and a bit feet) and I bought my OM-D because it was light and compact, and despite the reviews which talk about how awkward it to use or hold, find it quite comfortable. It is what it is.

Why then (and this is a genuine question not a cynical barb!) notwithstanding those with physical injury or illness that affects grip, do people want to make it bigger and heavier?

What are the advantages of having a large, heavy m4/3 camera that is the size of a SLR and almost as heavy but isn't a SLR?

If you want something that walks like a duck, why don't you get a duck in the first place?

Cheers,
P

For me (big hands) while the E-PL5 is an absolute delight and works well for me in landscape mode, if I want to use it for a lot of portraits, then a portrait grip is of real value, which is why I made my own, with the extra focus/shutter buttons.

The one featured here is simply an ergonomic grip, that may appeal to some but without the features of the Olympus Grip, the market for this will, I expect, be quite limited.

OM-D owners, does your tiny one make you feel inadequate? If so buy one of these to make it bigger, guaranteed to satisfy your subjects.

I was simply suggesting the OP was spam, spam, spam, spam, egg, beans and spam in a way a spammer would recognise.

In Canada chips are crisps and French fries are chips!
Unless you're eating fish and chips when chips are chips

Surely not! One post and the same one on every forum on the internet? What made you think that?
