    I've got mine used for $100. So, the used market still has better prices.

    Hi Yevgen!

    You got a really nice deal! I paid full retail for mine (I'm an early adopter, there wasn't any used market then and Olympus wasn't cutting any deals) :mad: .

    I don't use it as much these days as I have in the past because I've pretty much 'welded' a 20mm lens onto the E-M5 so the grip is a bit superfluous; when mounting my 45-200mm, tho, it balances things out nicely :thumbup:.

    I've not tried the leather hand grip, I'm more of a "wrap the neck strap around the wrist" kinda shooter; that leaves the option of using the neck strap as...well...a neck strap when I get tired of lugging that huge E-M5 with the 20mm lens mounted around in one hand :biggrin: .

    Regards,

    Jim

    It's the same price on the Canadian site, so in essence, 10% cheaper.

    The $199 price is being reflected everywhere, Adorama, BH, Amazon etc.
    Only diff is lack of GS-4 hand strap versus Oly store. But then again, Oly store charges tax depending on where you are so pick and choose what works for you.
