Help me to decide: Gariz case or ECG1 grip for E-M10?

I really like the retro look of my E-M10. And I think, the Gariz case will add more grip to the body and will keep on this retro style of Olympus. Otherwise, I read some reviews about ECG1 and sure, it will add more grip to body too, but I will lose some retro feeling, I think. It will be more DSLR-like style.

Which to choose? :)

I'm a taller guy and as such found that the E-M10 was far too small to handle comfortably without the add on grip. I have an X100S that also felt a bit too small (though not as small as the E-M10 did) but that was remedied with a Thumbs Up thumbrest and a Gariz case. If all you are looking for is a little more purchase on the camera (i.e., more surface area) then the Gariz case would provide that, but the ECG1 would definitely provide better ergonomics in my opinion.

I can only relate my experiences to an E-M5 camera. The landscape grip (on the HLD-6) was great for the extra support it offered on longer/heavier lenses. The Gariz half-case made the camera body thicker which made it much easier to hold for shorter/lighter lenses. I enjoyed having both options on my E-M5. Good luck on your decision.

I bought the E-M10 Gariz case when it first came out and had to return it. The hump below the lens mount was too big and I couldn't mount the Panaonsic 12-35mm on.

They said they would be re-designing the case as a result. If you decide to buy one, make sure to ask if it's the newer version.
