To grip or not to grip? M1 MkI and Mk2

I currently have PEN-F and M1 MkI. I plan to upgrade the M1 to Mk2 in the next couple of weeks.

I’m happy with the PEN-F as is... small primes and 12-40 Pro handle just fine for me.

The M1 is also great, but I wonder whether I’d enjoy it even more with a battery grip, particularly when using 40-150 Pro. My bottom fingers just wiggle around in thin air. The joys of MFT size!

Given I’m coming from a Canon DSLR background, the extra weight isn’t really a big deal and the portrait controls would be useful.

Thoughts? Particularly from those used to shooting big DSLRs.
