Re: OMD E-M5 Original design Grip

Some nice ideas for a QR solution, Bob.

I am pretty sure it does not matter if the middle part of the grip base protudes forward, to make more room for the tripod mount to align with the lens.  5mm outside of the camera base is not going to obstruct anything, if the shape is rounded and smooth.  The camera mount is actually about that thick and it is also extending out from the body.

And I have another thought about the shape of the finger grip.  I think the OP should check to see if it comfortable for shooting in "portrait" orientation.  I feel that there is probably not enough material/grip for the middle finger to hold the weight of the camera comfortably, and thus making the thumb work harder. The J.B. Design grip is actually quite good at that and seems better than this new design.  Something closer to the J.B. design might be more suitable.
