Yeah I was looking at getting the UN-9125 aluminium one over here -
but on reading around some reviews mentioned that it's actually pretty harsh having a narrow cut metal rim in the palm of your hand. Which made me wonder if there was something more agreeable around and then I found the JB ones. Personally I think it could be pink and branded with my little pony logos, if it was comfortable to use I'd grab it . I think it ends up looking vaguely steampunkish next to a modern mirrorless camera - like there is a little snus compartment in the handle somewhere
$80 for that??? Uhh...no thanks...
I have the E-M5 version of that aluminum one and I prefered it over the JB and the stock HLD grips. Of course the E-M5 is different than the E-P5 so the grip might not be as comfortable. It feels higher quality IMHO than either of the other two. The E-M5 version has some a nice textured leather piece that matches the E-M5 and makes it blend in more than the JB grip which looks more "I bolted something on my camera!" more so than the UNX.
And what really annoys me is that as soon as I bought my RRS grip, the Chinese then decide to bring out an equivalent at a lower price: ..
Really? It annoys you that you paid RRS for their engineering, rather than the guy who just copied what they did? I don't like to waste money, but I'm happy to pay the people I want to develop this and the next product I'll want. I'm glad I bought both the E-M5 and E-M1 grips and L-plates from the creators.
