    Richard Franiec just wrote me to let me know that he is producing a limited number of Canon EOS M grips will be available in the second half of November 2013 for $34.95 plus shipping.

    I can attest to the very high quality of Richard's grips, and the EOS M certainly seems like a camera that would benefit.

    For photos of the grip or to pre-order, see Richard's site: http://www.kleptography.com/rf/#camera_eosm

    So, do you think Mr. Franiec will produce a good camera to go with the grip? Maybe a Fuji that looks like the EOS M?

    Richard obviously likes it. His comments are favorable and he's bothering to make a grip.

    I've used one rather extensively. Couldn't resist the smartass comment.

    Ah. :smile:Actually this grip surprised me. The M doesn't get a lot of love. I ordered one because it will help the ergs quite a bit. AF is still weak but I love the 22.

    The 22mm is an excellent lens. It's the equivalent of the Panasonic 20mm lens for the EOS M system. Unfortunately it looks like the EOS M system may stay rather abbreviated.

    The new grip came in today. It went right on and it's very nice. $$$ well spent. Just in time for the Disneyworld trip.

    Just for a last comment, two days now and the grip works really well. Doesn't make the camera bigger but it provides a "hook" to hold the camera by.

    I ordered mine last week. I think it should be here in a few days. Looking forward to it.

    I originally got the M+22, but I also just got the 270EX ii and the 18-55. It's a nice little camera. I think the grip will round it out nicely.
