    Hi guys,

    I've found it difficult to find handgrips for the EM10 MkII. From what I've read there's some modifications to the dimensions of the MkII from the original EM10. Would it make a big difference if I used a EM10 handgrip on the MkII?

    I can't seem to find any stock aside from the ECG-1 which is for the EM10 in Australia. On eBay I've seen a few different varieties, however, I'm not sure if they will fit well with the MkII.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ah yes that's the Oly one, I remember seeing that but it was quite pricey. About $100 AUD. It looks a bit square though - the handle.

    I'm liking this one: Hand Grip Bracket Quick Release L-plate for Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II , EM10 II
    It took a bit more searching on eBay to find but works out to be much cheaper and looks easier to hold in the hand.

    I've never owned the E-M10 mkII grip. But I did have the grip for the mkI, the Oly grip was great. I used a mkII for a short time but didn't have the grip.

    From what I´ve read, theres just a few milimeters difference between ECG 1 and 3, but you can´t use ECG 1 on mark 2. I have the ECG 3 and it feels great.

    Yep, this is what I've read. I might go with the cheaper option on eBay :)
