E-M1X...Approx 8% of my shots are portrait.

Do I really need a portrait grip built in ?

I've had grips, usually freebies, for E-M5, E-M5II and E-M1 and I've NEVER used the grip any one of them, on the basis that it just added unnecessary bulk and weight.

I have my grip permanently attached on my EM1 mk2. Although only rarely use it in portrait mode. But as my 300mm F4 is pretty much permanently attached, the balance with this lens is superb, but feels awkward without the grip attached.

Then it's an easy decision, the EM1X is not for you.
