    Just saw this on 43rumors.com:

    Grip for E-PL5

    Can see the price is 1980+350 yen for shipping.

    For anyone who reads Japanese, does it look like they can ship Internationally? (I'm in Canada).

    I have an E-PM2 but think this should fit....at least sort of. I can modify...

    Thanks!

    Neat, but kind of big. I guess you could just use it for those times when you wouldn't mind a bigger body.

    I wouldn't mind a bigger body when I have the 14-54 II on it with adapter!

    This is exactly what I was looking for when I had an E-PM1. Hope they become available outside Japan too.

    It's really inexpensive (~30 USD). My concern is that it might not be high quality for that price.

    Please let me know how the order went =)

    This might be the answer for me, when i was thinking between E-PL5(/E-PM2) and EM-5...

    Looks like the tripod mount is in the same location on the E-PM2, but the site is for Japan-only orders....so no go.
