The Franiec grip wll work - it covers the AC adapter and the USB port. Not a big thing for both. He had two versions with the second offering being a little deeper and this would be better for the M-series given they have more weight (and size).

Rick and all,

Every grip I design and make fits and works best with particular camera model it is intended for. Body shape, weight distribution, control layout, all have a decisive impact on how the custom grip addresses the handling enhancement issues and how it will be shaped and integrated with the camera body to provide most benefits. I guess this approach separates my grips from "one fits all" concepts.

Current DP grip was designed around original DP bodies; it is not compatible with DPMerrills and I would never recommend it to be used outside the intended target.

Having said that, when and if I decide to make the grip for DPM's, don't expect any resemblance with original DP grip. I have the initial concept for the DPM grip already covered.
