This is a definite MUST for any of the small mirror less cameras. It helps tremendously with stabilizing the camera in your hand and taking a picture. It is all metal and feels very nice. Matches the finishes of the camera perfectly. The reason I have to give it 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because of the price. $49-$59 for this item too much. Lensmate would sell a ton more if they lowered the price of these to $39 which I believe is the sweet spot for it. You may not make as much per item sold but you would sell a great deal more and end up making more money in the long run.

I just put the Lensmate made for the X-E1 or 2 thumb grip (black) on my Fuji X-E2 camera and it's like night and day. This is never coming off the camera. With just the slightest bit of pressure the camera feel and balance has changed dramatically for the better. It perfectly keeps my thumb from spinning the exposure compensation dial but doesn't really interfere with access to the controls... well, the shutter speed dial is a little harder to get to but I'll take the slight inconvenience for the improvement to the camera.

The hot shoe on the X-E2 is recessed into the camera top so any torque on the rail from using the thumb grip will be supported in part by it being up against the camera top.

The price, it's outrageous, but it really made a difference in how my camera feels in my hand so... I guess it's worth it.

This little device is truly the icing on the X-E1 cake! I've gone through a number of cameras searching for the "feel" of the classic 35mm cameras and the support and control that came from having a thumb behind the (long-vanished) film advance lever. The Lensmate Thumb Grip is perfect in fit, finish and function...couldn't be more pleased!

This is a beautifully crafted quality piece of work. It is expensive and I hesitated to spend that amount of money when there were other alternatives in the $12 to $20 range, but the negative reviews poor fit, poor workmanship, breakage etc. made me hesitate to try them. So I bit the bullet and paid the price and I am very satisfied with this product. It does make the camera more stable and secure in my grip especially when holding it with one hand and the longer I use it the more I appreciate it. Is it expensive? Yes, but given the limited market, it is made to fit the Fuji X-E1/E2 and not a generic fit for multiple cameras I can understand the price. Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. For me I am glad I spent the money as I plan on having this camera for several years and this was a worthwhile accessory.
I also purchased the lensmate soft release button which I would recommend too.

Fuji sells and ergonomic kit with an absurdly expensive thumb grip. This is by far the best of the knock offs for both quality of manufacture, size and addition of the silicone grips for both thumb and mount. Works perfectly on both the X-E1 and X-20. It is just the right length so your thumb falls naturally against the grip and also keeps your thumb away from the LCD or exposure compensation dial. Very smooth to take on or off and it has a little silicone grip surface on the mounting side too to keep it secure.

Save yourself the hassle and disappointment of the other much cheaper generic versions by Fotodiox and Thumbs Up and just buy this version (I have black cameras, the same item is available in silver).

I purchased this thumb grip due to the overwhelmingly positive response it received everywhere. However, I'm not that impressed, somewhat disappointed really. It works very well at its job, providing a nice support for your thumb and therefore gives confidence in the shooter to use the camera with one hand, steady your camera for longer exposures, etc (as all thumb grips do really). However, I do not see a higher fit and finish (overall quality) in this product than its Chinese manufactured competitors which generally cost 1/5-1/3 the price. The silicone inserts are, indeed, a nice addition and an advantage over similar products (I am interested to see how long they will remain attached). At $60, I'm on the very cusp of whether or not to return this item...

Other notes, as an X-E1 owner, you may be very annoyed to see X-E2 engraved on this item despite it's compatibility and marketing for both cameras. If you apply a decent amount of pressure (not an unrealistic amount) on this thumb grip, it causes the item to torque in the hot shoe and back itself out about 1 mm (somewhat annoying). I wish it was screw mounted. This is version II of the X-E1/X-E2 thumb grip by Lensmate. Version I was screw mounted and advertised to be manufactured in the USA, they made this explicitly clear... However, this version II is not explicitly advertised to be manufactured anywhere, it makes me suspicious. Hopefully someone from Lensmate will clear this up.

Not sure why others blindly gave this item 5 stars with two major draw backs... 3-5 times the price of competitors with only a marginal difference in build quality and so-so camera mounting (silicone allows item to wiggle in place a tiny bit).

Can't go wrong. I look at this as part of my insurance program for my camera. Also improves the over all ergonomics of the camera. My thumb has somewhere to rest and adds extra security from dropping my camera.
