I have the M grip on my two M6s. It is well made and as sturdy as a
smallish piece of plastic will ever be. It does not interfere with loading
film, and I have not noticed my fingers in any of the Heliar shots.

Next weekend at Photokina I will have a look at Tom Abrahamsson's new
RapidGrip, which is bigger, heavier and has room to store batteries.
