    I do like that you can access the battery without removing the grip. However one thing that the factory grip that no aftermarket one does is the extra buttons! I love that the shutter release is moved forward. I find that so much more comfortable than reaching back with my finger.

    Looks nice, and price is very good. Only turn off for me is how thick the base is. Not sure why it needs to be so thick - half that would be ideal.

    That's a pretty good price. Though, it doesn't look like it centers the tripod socket and lens?

    Looks like the mounting screw goes straight thru to the camera(which is not centered), no offset mount that is centered.

    I know that this is a seriously old thread, but I just wanted to say that the JB grip took my camera from being something that I tolerated using because I had to get rid of my 60D for health reasons, to a camera that I truly love shooting with. The grip is well made, and pretty much never leaves my camera.

    Because of so many good reviews here. I decided to order one. Who knows someday out of the blue 12-35mm 2.8 appear in my drawer, I might gonna need this extra grip. Lol. On the plus side, the price is almost the same like the body cap lens, so it wouldn't hurt.

    I ordered a J.B. grip and tried it on my OMD. I found it to be very well thought-out, well made, and well finished. But I also found that I prefer the handling of my camera with no grip at all, so I sent it back. Your mileage may vary, so if you think you would like a grip, I can recommend the J.B. Camera Designs highly.
