    Thanks John. That looks very functional and like an art sculpture.
    I am putting in my order right now as I found a really excellent tripod support is necessary for the hi res shots.
    (I sent you an email.)

    First time I see the "portrait" orientation on the right...great for connectivity when mounted in that position.

    it is the first time i have seen it as well; having done it now, seems like it should have been that way all along. avoiding interference with the card access door is an issue that had to be resolved (compare that to the fuss trying to avoid the USB port doors with sliding bases, etc.), and the L-plate adds bulk in the grip zone (the palm) but seems to work quite well

    Thanks John for sending the L-plate with grip.
    It fits perfectly on my E-M5 Mark II and it stays on it.
    Works for me just fine.

    Here is a similar implementation but for a Leica camera.
