Excerpt: I love the extra grip this thing gives you. The vertical shutter release and the second command dial are wonderful. The tray for AA batteries is a nice addition as well. I was a bit concerned about carrying my D610 with a 70-200 lens on a strap connected to the bottom of the battery pack. There is just enough movement with all that weight to give you a momentary fright.
Excerpt: The D90 stored both batteries in the power pack. This one stores only one, and the other is IN the camera body. This means if you ever need to charge that IN-body battery, you have to remove the power pack. Not very efficient. Nikon should have stayed with the D90 design.
Excerpt: I purchased it for my D600 and it's perfect. No wiggle room, no rattling of any kind. I have owned and used most of the other generic grips and they do not compare to this guy. Unlike the generic grips, the MB feels solid and the buttons are nice and tight. The MB weights more than the generic grips because of it's magnesium alloy built but this is not a con. I find that the added weight on the butt helps balance the camera now that the body is extended.
Excerpt: Great fit and finish on this grip. Perfect seam fit on my D600. Nikon quality all the way, no cheap wraps or exposed polymer grip. Vertical button and controls work great. I looked at third party grips and read the reviews. I decided to go with Nikon for the grip and well pleased in all areas. Some may not like the added weight to camera body but that is a personal decision as to why you want a grip in the first place.
Excerpt: There's nothing than purchase original brand things, third party could save some bucks, but the product quality from the original brand it's another thing...I always recommend to purchase original productsremember...you get what you pay for...
