Q: Hello, I also have a Leica M8, and I have some questions: Will this fit correctly on the first M8 (not the M8.2)? Also, it seems like the grip is short on the bottom. Will I have to take off the original bas plate off? Or do I keep it on? I do no want the battery or anything else falling off. If you can, please email me the instructions that comes with it. I really want to buy this! -Adam Jul-20-10

When I had my M8 I picked up a used genuine M grip that was like new for $90.00 ... I think it was off eBay from memory! I didn't actually like it much I discovered ... when holding the camera in a comfortable position it's too easy to block the rangefinder window with the tip of your index finger! I liked the look of it on the camera but thought the design was careless.
