            Makes it very easy to grip the camera without a strap. I use it with the finger loop for added protection from slipping off. Wish it was cheaper but its Leica!

              Comments about Handgrip for Leica X Vario Camera:

              I already own a Leica 240 with a somewhat similar hand grip, so I was expecting similar performance...and I got it. It makes the camera much easier to grip than using the camera without it. Even thought the grip has a well-made rubberized surface, if your hands get sweaty, it can become a bit slippery, but not so much that you risk losing your grip on the relatively light camera.

              The grip is a bit lighter than the one made for the M240, which is why I took off one star...the grip would be perfect if it were a similar size of the M. Perhaps it was a design issue and a larger grip wasn't possible...but regardless, it's still well made and functionally makes the camera easier to handle.

              As with all Leica products, it ain't cheap. If you buy a Leica without knowing this fact, you will learn very quickly.

                  Comments about Handgrip for Leica X Vario Camera:

                  This handgrip definitely improves the handling of the X-Vario. It attaches and detaches quickly with the turn of a handscrew and thus is not much of an impediment when you have to change batteries or remove the card. The grip counters the forward leaning tendency of the X-vario caused by the weight of the outstanding lens. I also agree that it does nothing to counter a design fault of the X-Vario, the placement of the toggle wheel so that when one is shooting, one naturally touches the right side of the wheel and that brings up an unwanted menu on the screen just as you are shooting. Happened too many times to me. Needs to be fixed so that the wheel is rendered immobile when one is in the act of shooting. Otherwise, I love the grip and the outstanding images created by the camera itself.

                    Comments about Handgrip for Leica X Vario Camera:

                    The grip is perfectly built for the X Vario, very tightly set. It insures a solid catch of the camera when walking.
                    Perfect? Not entirely, as it doesn't prevent to inadvertaly touch the rotating disk sometime when shooting pictures. Anyway, a good buy.
