    I wonder what sort of heat build up you would get with a silicone case like that? I know that these camera do heat up at times; at least, mine do.

    Silicone in general is known to withstand even oven heat up to 400+ degrees F. I'm sure the case won't melt under any camera heat up.

    As to whether silicone insulates the camera more retarding heat dissipation...I don't know.

    I would bet that it does.

    I used the Lensmate Thumb Grip on my X100T and found it just the job. Had similar on my X-Pro1s and now use Thumbs Ups on my Leica M9s. I think they give just enough additional grip without getting over bulky. BTW I never use flash, if you do the thumb grips need to come off for it so I imagine becomes awkward if not PITA.

    Another vote for the Lensmate Thumb grip. Allows me to use the camera with one hand when I want to. It should be on the camera right from the factory. It makes that much of a difference. I'm also using the one from my T.

    I love the lensmate thumb grip it’s on my X100T with the original Fuji grip and together they work very well

    I use exactly the same combination, just on an all black camera – makes the Flutschi much easier to handle ... ;-)

    There are a few things I don't like about the setup:
    1. The thumb grip gets in the way of the rear control wheel which is actually used for quite a lot of functions on the X100F.
    2. The front grip is kind of heavy for such a small camera.
    3. I have to pull the thumb grip off whenever I use a flash (the internal doesn't work with the lens hood I have and it also doesn't work with the TCL, so I always carry an EF-X20 small flash with me.
    #3 is actually my biggest gripe as handling is now different when the flash is on, which is even more annoying than #1.

    It's better to keep it as an add on for those that need it. I handled one a little while ago which had a thumb grip and my thumb didn't even reach that far!
