I agree 100%. I bought one for the A7R first because it "required" impeccable technique and stability to shoot handheld. I just wasn't getting the stability I needed without the grip. As my pinky and ring finger don't feel as stable with smaller cameras.

I also shot my M's with a half case and built in grip at all times for the same reason.
