tesilab, I know your comments above are for a 1 handed grip, but how is that different than 2 handed?  Same issues?

First off, ultimately I don't think it is an issue. There is more than one way to hold it with this grip and I will settle into something comfortable--it just won't be the same as holding it without a grip, which had different issues.

If by two handed grip you simply mean adding the left hand for focusing, aperture adjustment, and stability: it would only make a difference if you were to rely on your left hand for primary support, and lighten up on the grip, which I frankly did not consider, since I think of the grip as something one uses to both grasp *and* shoot.

I don't think I'm taking it off my camera, unless I should be tempted by something both more practical and aesthetic.
