      Re: Grip

      I was disappointed at how clunky the Olympus grip feels on camera, but it certainly changes the handling with big lenses for the better.

                      Re: Grip

                      I have the Meike version of Olympus' ECG-4 handgrip, which I leave on my Pen-F at all times as I find it gives me a much better grip on the camera when using a wrist strap. However, my one complaint is that the grip part is a smooth plastic with a slightly grainy pattern. Does anyone know if the official Olympus grip has a leather-like covering on the grip to match the camera body? I can't find any details on the Olympus website, but was thinking if it was less slippery than my Meike grip it could be worthwhile looking out for one at a discount know that the Pen-F has been discontinued

                        I have the Olympus ECG-4 handgrip on my Pen-F, and it looks like, and feels exactly the same as the material on the Pen-F body.

                          Thanks Stewart, it sounds a useful upgrade from my Meike version then
