JLM Sigma Merrill Grip
It's The Little Things That Count
Do you own or are thinking about owning a Sigma DP2 Merrill or DP1 Merrill? If not, please move along. Nothing to see here. If you do, then you're likely going to be interested in an L plate grip from John Milich.
Beautifully machined out of black oxide aluminum with a precision smooth finish, there is an Arca style horizontal as well as vertical mounting plate. It is available with or without the L plate. Not only is the built quality very high, but the base has a large cut-out that allows for access to the battery and card door without needing to remove the unit. The combination L bracket / grip is the way to go and costs $140.
After working with one for a day I ordered two more, another for my DP1M and a second as a gift for a friend. It's that good.
Ordering is non-traditional, but easy. Send an email to John at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your mailing address and other particulars. Payment can be made via Paypal to his email address. It's as simple as that. Highly recommended.
