    Spoiling an icon (not that the OM10 was an icon but you get my drift).

    Exactly, it absolutely would - looks as though the bottom plate has a dovetail slot - I'd even buy one the the e-pl1 with a little bit of extra grip added it would be even better than it is already.

    I bought my E-P1 because it is such a compact well built camera. I will be darned if I have any desire to hang "stuff" on it to ruin the look and feel of it.:tongue:

    The E-P1 front panel with grip comes off quite easily (the bottom plate unscrews) - it would be very easy for an aftermarket replacement grip to be fabricated... if there was a demand.

    Personally, I like it naked and as designed.

    Cheers

    these are the 'bridge' grips, a bit pricy but wonderful to use.
    i have 2, one for each of my rd1 bodies.
    they work great in concert with wrist straps.

    While ugly as it may be, a larger grip on the EP1 would really help me with the telephoto stuff.

    i don't see the ugly myself, it looks great on my cameras.
    but really, it's about making the camera easier to hold and carry and when i am out shooting, the camera is always in my hand, for hours at a time...it works perfectly for me.

    it might be a bit big for the smaller m4/3 bodies though.
