I have the Rapidgrip from Tom Abrahamsson and am very satisfied. I use it 
for the heavy or long lenses (75 lux, 135) or, rarely, when I use a heavy 

The "Gripping feel" is very good, (significant better feel than Leica's 
orig. grip that I have tried at a Leica show day in a local shop). It has a 
very useful compartment for an extra battery. On the top there is a screw 
mount for a soft release. Very useful too if you have one.

No cons' to report.
My grip has three finger indentations not only 1 like on the picture. Looks 
gorgeous btw.
