OMD and getting a grip

The big structure on the right is a "chorten".

It is a Buddhist structure erected for the gods. There is no entrance to it. it is a one piece structure that sometimes can contain ashes of a deceased.

That's interesting. Here in the Pacific Northwest region of North America there are places where there are stacks of stones, some of which were assembled by native inhabitants hundreds of years ago. In a way, sort of reminiscent of the structure you photographed.

Regarding the grip, I got one as soon as it came out. I did not feel it helped the ergonomics that much. I left it home for this trip thinking the whole point of m4/3 was potability.

So far I haven't felt that the EM-5 has been an ergonomic problem, but also I have mainly used relatively small lenses with the camera. I can appreciate there may be situations where the grips will be helpful. Mainly, the ability to have more battery power on board is my reason to consider buying the grip set.
