X100F thumb grip?

Anyone solved this yet? I think I saw Lensmate will eventually come out with one, but I'm not sure if I want one that folds, and of course it's not available. I sure would like to have one now...

That one doesn't appear to be available yet.

Are there any hot-shoe thumb grips on the market that work?

Amazon has several cheap generic models for sale. Cheap enough to toss out if they don't work. One of them might suffice until Lensmate gets theirs on the market.

touche' I guess some reading of "this one has a hump/no hump" kinda overpowered the common sense of "they're all cheap, just get a couple and try them. Thanks.

The X100T lens mate thumbs up fits, it just barely covers the top right corner of the 'view mode' button making it slightly more difficult to access. Definitely not a deal breaker and not worth it (to me) to spend another $100 bucks on almost the same grip. I'm sure if you really wanted you could Dremel just the slightest bit off the lower left edge so the view mode button is completely unobstructed.

Here's the grip for the X100T on the X100F

Ok, I don't think there's a "like" feature on this forum but I sure like your post. Thank you. That tells me EVERYTHING I wanted to know, but didn't ask. I'd be ok with making "View Mode" harder to access, as my new LeicaTime (read too much $$$) case intentionally has a back panel so I'm not chimping anyway. Also I was not happy that Lensmate was going to put a hinge in the F version. I was planning to JB Weld it if I went that route. That T grip will be just fine. Thanks again!

I had also opted for the 'T' version after having seen the first images of the 'F' version and how it covers the rear control dial which I use often to scroll between a few Custom Settings. The idea of having to flip out the Thumb grip every time I wanted to scroll bugged me.
