ok so I decided to keep my e-p3. If I'm going to stick with M43 I figured there's no better camera to start off with, especially since I can't sell it for the price I wanted it for, and the OM-D is no where available. I think this is actually a blessing in disguise as now, I can buy some glass. Couple of things though. I don't particularly enjoy the standard grip and read that the Large grip from Olympus works well. Are there other grips available? I'm really hung up on the thumb up grip - anyone use the one from ebay and is it justifiable in performance? I think I read that it damaged someone's hotshoe connection... Lastly, I need a half case! I can't justify buying a gariz case but am thinking about going to ebay again. Anyone have any experience with it? Also, does anyone use soft shutter release button for the e-p3? I know its' not a screw in so I'm assuming it uses a self adhesive? thanks ya'll and excited to start already!
