How do you like the Lensmate soft release? I am looking at the red version of that one, as well as the thumb grip for my X-E1 when it arrives.

The soft release is great although I bought mine before they started including the o-ring so mine sometimes unscrews over time. Supposedly the o-ring prevents loosening of the release. The thumb grip is excellent!

Give a try at an Ace Hardware store, back where they keep the bins with screws and nuts. I know they have some O-rings; whether they have the right size, I don't. Myself, I'd try to find a small flat washer to keep the mounted profile as low as possible; silicone or rubber. Just something to absorb the vibration caused by the camera being moved around.

As far as that goes, if you've got a thin piece of silicone laying around, there's nothing to say you can't make your own. Cut the hole first; then trim to fit beneath the button on the soft release. It won't show.
