Re: also weighs nearly twice as much

One of the best features of the Olympus grip is the little lip on top that allows you to hook your middle finger underneath it for a very secure hold, without having to put a death grip on the camera.  I haven't tried the RRS grip, but the indentation appears to serve the same purpose.

On this new third party grip, there's only a cutaway, with nothing to lock your middle finger.  So it would appear that you would have to put a strong grip on the camera to really hold it securely.  Sort of defeats the purpose.
