    I've seen lots of chatter about this, but not sure I've heard from someone who has actually verified that it works. I have the E-M5 II and the HLD-8 hand grip, and I'm just trying to officially verify that the HLD-6 grip from the original E-M5 will work properly on it.
    (and does anyone want to sell me one? :)

    Is Olympus itself official enough?

    That's a humorous or slightly confusing sentence, "The HLD-6P battery holder is the same as the HLD-6 for exclusive use with the OM-D E-M5," but I suppose they mean it works for both. Thank you!

    I sold my old E-M5 w/ the two part grip to a friend of mine back in 2013. I recently picked up the E-M5ii along with the HLD-8G, and this past week bought back the HLD-6 grip from my friend. I received it earlier today and can confirm that it works.
