The 60 just seems like a great addition to the lineup. It wasn't one people were "asking" for from what I can tell, but they just didn't know. Just seems so useful.

You can see the extra release is the top-half of the HLD-6 grip, which gives you a lot more to hold on to, especially if you happened to be using a larger lens like one of the adapted four-thirds lenses or a tele zoom like the 75-300 M. Zuiko.

That top piece of the HLD-6 also centers the tripod socket if that's important at all for you. When I use my Demb flash bracket, having the tripod socket centered make the outfit ergonomically much better.

Shooting with the prime lenses, no part of the grip is really all that necessary, but the extra-large grip provided by the top section of the HLD-6 does "feel" nice whether the lens atatched is big or small.

I didn't realize this lens was only 499.00. As someone who planned to by the 45 mm Olympus (399.00) and 25 mm Panasonic as his next two lenses (currently own the 12-50 only). Would you recommend bypassing the 45?
