Hello all, I currently have a Neewer (aka Meike I believe?) grip for my x-e2. It's ok, and pretty good value, however I don't think it's the last word in comfort. If the Fuji grip is better, I'm happy to swallow the extra cost. I just wondered if anyone has experience of both products and can comment on the fit, quality and comfort of the Fuji vs. the Neewer?

The aperture ring is for composing in the third dimension, not removing it!

Short story:
For my X-T1, I had original Fuji grip ("medium" size) and after several months replaced it with iShoot grip, for 2 reasons:
- iShoot grip has L-bracket (removable) while Fuji grip not has any
- Fuji grip not allows screen tilting when pulling it's bottom side, need to pull upper side first. Just bug of design.
Both grips are comfortable for my hands, I think the iShoot grip is a bit better.

So, when I purchased E2S I immediately went to iShoot grip option and happy with it.
