    Of course not but rumors in Japan and no firmware update is a good indicator.

    just want to share about the Flipbac grips i bought for my DP1M/DP2M, they provide sufficient grip to improve the handling.

    the G4 grip which fits nicely on the DPxM costs us$10.99 each, plus us$2.99 for shipping. there are other designs but because of the small raised dots on the DPxM's body only the G4 with a cavity behind can fit correctly.

    here is their website:

    http://flipbac.com/camera-grip-about.htm

    i ordered from them directly as the local shops do not have them. shipping took only about 9 days by USPS mail.

    What i really need is a customised cable release that does not take up the flash holder, maybe a bracket extending from the tripod socket. That way a flash and tripod setup can be used at the same time. Any ideas or source? TIA.

    am also looking for the same thing, and came across this:

    Olympus E-PL1 REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE MECHANICAL - YouTube

    i may be wrong but it looks like the whole assembly is mounted on the tripod socket.

    with enough skills and materials, for me this might be a worthwhile project to look into.

    sharing a snapshot with my DP2M during a recent trip.



    100% crop, the whiskers are still incredibly sharp.



    after all this while i'm still blown away by how much detail the Foveon sensor can produce, really awesome.
