Re: Need help deciding between the Sony NEX 6 or the Olympus OMD EM5?

I was pretty much stopped from buying a OMD E5 by the comment in the Popular Photography magazine review that the only reason they didn't say the grip was awful was that there was an optional battery/grip available.     I really like Olympus by the way.  I have an XZ1 (with add on Franiec grip that makes it holdable) and XZ2 that I really enjoy using.

I find the grip on my NEX7 feels very secure and just right with most lenses (but the Sony SEL18200  just throws the balance off too much.  The Tamron 18200 (or equivalent Sony 18200LE) feels fine on the NEX7.
