HDL-6 for the E-M5 . . .

The HLD-6 is a very well designed accessory for the O-MD that greatly improves its handling and in my opinion is worth the extra cost. And that is coming from someone who thinks Olympus is ripping us off charging for lens hoods. As a side note I cannot see how this could have been designed to allow changing the camera battery without having to remove the horizontal grip. I have seen a horizontal grip made by another company for the O-MD that has a rectangular hole in its base that allows for battery changing but does not allow for the portrait grip (which I seldom use). While this IMO has merit it does not have the extra controls and the custom fit the HLD-6 has and if I recall correctly costs about $150.
