I use the aftermarket grip on my M4, and a Leica grip on my M6. The 
aftermarket grip is in two parts, The grip can be removed and the baseplate 
left on. This comes in handy for those impromptu shots of me and my wife 
using the self timer. Removing the grip section eliminates the blockage of 
the self timer, while the baseplate of the camera is still protected.

Since the M6 has no self-timer, the Leica grip is preferable since it 
weighs less.

Both provide a tripod socket centered on the body.
