It seems like every Fuji needs a little help in the grip department. What say you?

I've never been into commercial gadgets. However I bought a grip because with my X-E2 when holding it my thumb goes on the AE-L AF-L buttons. That said now it works fine.

The thumbgrip for me is absurd since if you have a flash, you have to detach one and attach the other every time you need it.

Also. With the thumbgrip mounted it's a pain in the butt turn the speed dial.

Thumb grips are useful for rangefinder style Fujis but I never felt the need for my XT1/2. Because I use back focus, it actually got in the way sometimes and I wound up selling it.
