    I just got this today from B@H I really liked my EM-10 now I have to say I really love the camera. I have an EM-10 with Oly 17mm 1.8, what a perfect combo ! "Merry Christmas" to all you folks.

    Hi bigal1000, i also picked one up today. It's such a neat little thing! It has really transformed the camera for me. Much more comfortable to use now. The cool quick release access for the battery and SD card is good too!

    Not got the 17mm yet, but it's on my want list but i'm really happy with the 25mm f1.8 so far!

    Merry Christmas to you too!

    I don't have an E-M10, but when I was considering purchasing one I was initially turned off by the size of the camera as I have larger hands. However, I agree that the grip completely transforms the handling - I quite liked the camera with the grip attached.

    Only had the camera about 5 days but it's the lens that has pretty much been on it the whole time. It's pretty nifty!

    It's sharp, quick to focus and balances well on the camera, even better now with the grip fitted. Paid around £100 less than retail and it's around 6 months old so i'm happy with that. :) also got the 14-42mm ez and the 45mm f1.8 which i haven't really had chance to shoot with properly but it is equally awesome from the initial shots. Looking forward to using it more over the holidays. :)

    I also want to add the 17mm f1.8 to my set. And the 9-18mm and i think I'll be done. :)

    If you like the 25 you will like it for sure it gives you a nice moderate wide angle 34mm equivalent view.

    The ECG-1 is an excellent accessory. I've had one for 6 months and it only comes off for battery and memory card removal. The grip and my home made wrist strap never come off the camera these days.
