I might add that I use arca swiss compatible quick release L plates on my
camera's, like these
They add some grip, protect the camera and cooperate with tripods easyily.
At a small weight penalty of course.

I drill a small hole in the right back edge to fit an Peak Design ancre,
this allows the camera to hang quite stable with the lens down (when it is
not to small/ light). The other ancre is on the left top side of the camera
itself, the portrait part is removed on the Olympus and Sony camera's. For
me, it is pleasant to hold, but ymmv.
