Richard Franiac has been making this style grip for countless cameras and he's often featured on various forums (to which he makes camera grips for). This company featured here is certainly taking his idea and running with it (I wonder if Richard has a patent on his designs, or....if, in fact, this is Richard's company under a different heading).

They have been producing these grips for years and I purchased a three item-set for my E-PL3 to years ago to test which one would suit me best. Buit i never would have come to the idea to use them for the E-M5 too as I hadn't believed they would stick on its material. Interesting indeed.

And these grips are made of rubber while Richard's are metal.
