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.

Lensmate did a great job adding some ergonomic control back to this small camera body. I have an X-E2 body that feels much better in hand with the thumb grip. Fits well without slipping. A worthy upgrade for an user.

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.

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 bought this for my X-E2, I had recently switched from a 35mm rangefinder to the X-E2 and holding the camera felt so awkward without the film advanced lever on top of having large hands. I did a ton of research on which thumb grip to buy; from the "official" fuji down to the lowest priced clones and I came the the conclusion that while this grip is definitely pricey compare to the clones that it was probably the safest bet, I was not wrong.

No screws is a plus, the finish is a spot-on match for the rest of the body, it fits perfectly, the curvature has a nice soft silicon insert for comfort and additional grip and the underside of the plate that slides into the hot-shoe also has a silicone pad to hold it in place. It totally changes the handling of the camera and it is far more comfortable to hold.
