    Has anyone seen or tried one out yet? Here's the link:

    http://www.amazon.com/Neewer%C2%AE-Release-L-Plate-Arca-Swiss-Standard/dp/B00MNA78OG/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1409686362&sr=8-4&keywords=e-m10+grip

    While I like the OEM grip for the E-M10 with the quick release lever, I wouldn't mind a fixed grip with a battery/SD card slot built-in so there would be no need to take anything off. It's also slightly cheaper than the OEM piece.

    Might be viable alternative for those looking to get an E-M10 grip!

    Interesting. You identify one key issue with the Olympus grip; can't change battery or access SD card without doing something. The quick release is nice, but useless if you have a QR plate attached. The integrated Arca-Swiss QR is nice. Also looks like the side plate is removeable if you don't have a need for it on a day to day basis. Only gripe I have based on a quick look is it doesn't seem to be toolless attach/remove from the camera. Need a coin at minimum.

    I made my own for the E-M5 (before I used the HLD-6) with extras on it.
