A grip that can do wonders for the handling of a camera proves that the camera is not good. This just confirms again that the E-M5 can be improved significantly if the landscape grip can be integrated into the camera, making it a light bit larger, easier to hold, while providing more space to allow the tripod mount to line up with the lens axis and to allow better buttons size/position. Not to mention also avoiding having to screw this grip off just to change batteries, and avoiding some wasted space, duplicated material and part, like the shutter release button when this grip is mounted all the time, and therefore unnecessary cost. Only the other part of the grip should be made an option. Let's hope the pro version of OMD does not make this mistake. People who have to have smallest size or pocketability just get the E-PL5.

Well - quite obviously you don't understand the advantages of a modular system. A pity.
