It's one of the reasons I haven't bought the Olympus grip. I had to do the same with my half case. And that uses a coin each time.

You know you want both and it is a question of which one to buy first. My vote goes to the OM-D. It has so much going for it that the thrill should last several weeks. Hey I've had mine for months with just the kit lens and a P20 and I am still in love with it.
