nice grip

Didn't think this would make much of a difference when it came in the mail but when I actually installed it, it makes a world of difference! Excellent grip texture and extends out enough to get great stability without compromising the sleekness and compact design of the ep3

Should Have Come with the Camera

By

from Solon, OH  -  Semi-Professional

Putting this larger grip on my E-PL5 was like a breath of fresh air! It made me love the camera much more. You can actually grip it instead of being afraid you're going to drop it. Don't even think about it, just order it!

Fits E-PL5 fine

By

from Tennessee  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Definitely improves the handling of my E-PL5 without adding much bulk or weight. Only drawback is fingertips are a tight squeeze when used with fatter lenses like the Lumix 20mm. With a more slender lens like the Oly 9-18 there is plenty of room. I presume it would work well with the kit 14-42 zoom also but do not have one to test.

MUST HAVE!

By

from Douglassville, PA  -  Semi-Professional

Absolutely incredible grip! The only bad thing is that Olympus makes this an accessory instead of including it with the camera in the first place! You must buy this- definitely worth it!

Get a better grip

By

from Berlin, Ct.  -  Semi-Professional

This grip was actually purchased for the EPL-5 to replace the smaller grip which is supplied for that body. It gives, I think, a better 'grip'.

Should've been standard on the E-PL5

By

from Southern California  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This grip transforms the E-PL5 into a whole other camera. Gives confident one handed holding even with heavier legacy glass. A must have for E-PL5 owners.

Improves gripability

By

from Maryland  -  Semi-Professional

I use the MCG-2 grip on my Olympus Pen E-PL5. It gives the camera more secure feeling when holding it with one hand. I don't have to pinch the camera between my finger and thumb, but rather can let it just hang from my fingers only.

Questions about this item:

P. J  Will this grip fit a ZX-2?
DAVID T  Sorry, can't answer this question definitively. I bought the MCG-2 grip for my Olympus E-PL5 for which it does fit. However, Olympus doesn't list the MCG-2 as fitting the E-PL5. It doesn't list the MCG-2 as fitting the ZX-2 either, but it doesn't mean that it doesn't fit it.
