    I'm drawn to it because it's about $15 US cheaper than the Olympus version, and claims that the battery and media card port is accessible while attached. BUT there are no user reviews on Amazon yet. Does anyone have any experience with this grip?

    There is also a different grip with similar characteristics

    Any comments and advice appreciated.

    The present.
    I like the Neewer a ton more based on it being Arca compatible. Looks like the EM10 has a ll of the ports on the right side meaning the portrait-orientation plate on the left side will not get in the way of a cable release (or even a wireless dongle).

    If you do ANY work on a tripod at all or intend to, this is the better plate by far, even if the battery is not accessile, which it looks like it might be, If you look at this listing for the same grip, it is clear that the battery door and cable door are accessible. http://www.amazon.com/bracket-Olympus-camera-Really-compatible/dp/B00LNW0B0I

    Even the grip handle can be removed, though I am not sure why you would do this.

    Not even close in my opinion.

    woof!
