Hi Jim,

Haha, oops, the E-M5. I have a habit of trying to shorten long posts and in this case I probably snipped one line too many.
The 5D2 feels fine w/o a grip btw....

After selling my E-3 I thought I was done for good with Olympus but I'm glad to have it alongside my 5D2.

I hope that Oly comes up with a larger top grip. Currently it is not deep enough to grip it with your whole hand. I have medium sized hands. I don't want my pinky curled in a ball. If I contort I can probably make it work but I feel like for extended shooting my hand would cramp. If made made a taller grip (with additional batteries) that would be awesome. I'd definitely buy that. We can still always add the bottom grip for those that want to portrait with dials and buttons. BTW, in portrait the bottom grip feels great! It's longer grip feels much better than the top grip.
