I have an FI+Z with the thick moulded rubber handgrip. Is there a bracket which will allow you to mount the digital microforce on the side of the unit while keeping the handgrip on ? I understand the original bracket is too short ? If someone sells them, please point me in the direction !

heres the picture from Jerry Hll's website - not terribly useful as you cant actually see the grip, but you know the grip I mean...

I believe you can cut down the side of the handgrip, losing one finger's hold to accomodate that bracket. I used the heavy duty velcro-type fastener (the clear plastic version that is the same on both sides) rather than the adhesive to attach the handgrip, so you can simply remove it when using the Microforce bracket.

By cutting away the one finger's worth the standard Preston bracket and Micro force still fit, you just have to trim that hand grip on the back and the side. At least mine still fit. I've had the micro force for yrs and only just got that hand grip.
