I have been trying to find ways to make my E-P3 more comfortable to use so I purchased the EP9 (larger) grip and the larger eyecup for the VF2. First off, the grip is terrific. Every E-P3 should come with one because it makes a huge difference in how the camera handles. It's easy grab, your finger are positioned better and I find that my thumb hits the scroll wheel a lot less (accidentally) now. It even improves the way the camera looks. The larger eyepiece is another matter...I wear glasses and it put my eyes farther back from the VF2 making the view appear much smaller. I can see where it might be really nice in bright light if you don't wear glasses but it's not a good option for me because of the smaller size. By comparison view in the built-in EVF on my G2 looks HUGE. In the end its not a huge problem. I am learning to use the E-P3 with just the rear screen.
