Re: rokinon 7.5mm omd with HDL-6 grip

id like to know if any one has had any expience with the OM-D with the HLD-6 grip using a rokinon 7.5mm fish eye  lens i was told that if you use this lens with the grip, the grip  will be in the photo or your hand will be.

No. I just tied this out specifically with your question in mind. In no way could I see myself getting my hand in the photo (from gripping the camera), and the grip is nowhere to be seen. The only time I've ever been able to get my fingers in a shot is when I'm careless with the fingers of my left hand after focusing or changing aperture. The only thing I can think of is that the lower grip can make it more difficult to change focus or f-stop without getting a finger in be way (I usually grip from under the camera - the lower grip forces you to adjust from the side). Hope this helps.
