    What Arca-Swiss mounting plate is everyone using for their new EM1?

    I saw that option, but who knows how long it'll be on backorder...Any others?

    I'll have to take a look at my EPM2, and perhaps take the one off of there, which is more of a universal mount, I think it was made by Kirk.

    I had the RRS grip on my E-M5, and now have the RRS plate on the E-M1. Both good choices. The E-M1 plate also adds a slot for a camera strap, which I think helps the camera hang at a better angle from my sling strap. I guess the RRS plate for the E-M1 was so popular they ran out of stock, but it's probably worth placing an order so you get one from the next batch.

    I ordered mine, it shipped quickly, and is on my camera now. I don't understand the backorder bit. It said that on the site so I was expecting a delay but it didn't happen.

    I ordered (and already have) the RRS stuff plate as well. It shipped the same day I ordered.

    @mattia,
    That looks like a really nice option. The plate is only $30 bucks and the belt clip seems like an excellent way to tote gear. Have to give this some thought.
    Thanks!

    Using a Capture Clip full plate as well (wanted to connect any direction with the Clip). It doesn't let my camera sit flat w/ a large lens though, but a trade off I'm willing to take. Previously had the JLM grip, but I wasn't comfortably with that stacked with capture clip.
