I've never liked the feel of the EM10 mkII on its own and purchased the Olympus EGC3 grip soon after purchasing the camera.

While this has been an improvement I still found the camera a bit difficult to hold so I decided to give the "L-Bracket Vertical Quick Release Plate Holder Hand Grip For Olympus OMD E-M10 II" available on ebay a try.

It arrived today and it is a great improvement in my opinion. Price was a lot lower than the "official" grip and it is a lot easier to hold.

Worth considering if you have an EM10 mkII.

I had not considered a grip for my EM10-mk2, because the purpose of the EM10 for me was compact carry.
Well best laid plans fail.
This week I used the EM10 as 2nd camera to my EM1; EM1 with the 12-100, EM10 with the 12-40. And I switched back and forth depending on which lens I wanted to use. In that situation, I decided that I really could use the extra bulk of a grip. Because I was using the EM10 as I was using my EM1, and not as a compact carry camera.

So fooey on me for passing up a couple of EM10-mk2 grips, thinking that I would not need them.

It finally arrived.
And it feels good.
Issues that I quickly found
  • The reach to the shutter button takes some adjusting. On gripped cameras, the shutter release is forward on the grip.
  • The clearance around the screw is too small to replace the screw with a D-screw that I can install/remove without needing to use a hex key.
