The side of this grip is only the height of a few fingers, so the user has no obstruction in reaching the OVF/EVF toggle switch. Plus, the grip has a good finish, matches the XP1 perfectly, is made of a sturdy metal "L", with a rubber base and plastic cover screwed onto the metal frame. A centered tripod screw hole is placed next to the thumbscrew on the grip base. When combined with a "Thumbs-Up" thumb-grip device, this XP1 grip will afford the user a very secure hold.
Alas, I can only give it 4 stars. It must have been 82 Yen sake night when the Fuji Engineers designed this grip without a rectangular hole to reach the battery compartment. :)
The assist grip is made from a solid chunk of metal, and adds a little extra weight to the camera, which I really like. The base of the grip has a rubber coating, the inside has a felt-like lining. Once secured by the little thumb screw, everything locks into place, with no movement at all. Very nice.
One of the gripes with the assist grip is the lack of a battery / SD card cut-out, but to be honest, I don't miss having it. It takes less than 5 seconds to remove the grip, probably less to put it back on. If 10 seconds counts as major inconvenience in your life, you may have picked the wrong camera.
The one valid complaint is the price. It seems like less of a value at full price, but it was steeply discounted when I bought it, making it a better buy. For the price I paid and the benefits it provides for me, this was a great purchase.
Adding this grip solves both of the above issues. Camera/lens how rests flat and the grip is very confident. If you plan to use the 55-200mm often, you need to add a grip to your X-Pro1.
I've found using this grip with the primes (18mm and 35mm) is also beneficial in confident hand holding. First, it gives more comfort for single handed holding. It also adds some useful bulk to the camera, which actually assists in holding for both the left and right hands. The only downside to using with 35mm prime is it will fall forward into the hood. I don't remember if this was happening with the 18mm and I doubt it will happen with the 27mm pancake lens.
I don't find removal to access the battery or memory card an issue. Removal is super quick, and mounting it back on is just as easy. People who complain about this are too picky. I prefer the cost savings and dont need the arca swiss mount of the more expensive new grip.
