Excerpt: My need for the battery pack is more for comfort than extra power. The camera rig just feels better with the battery pack installed - more substantial and easier to handle. I love the vertical shutter button and wheel. It feels like I'm less likely to drop my beloved, expensive DSLR.
Excerpt: This probably the least expensive grip from Nikon i've bought but its also the least responsive one too. Used on the D7200 it seemed like I got fewer fps using the grip shutter. I could be wrong but I dont think so. Also the focus was slower. Why? Beyond me.
Excerpt: I bought this battery grip because I have one on my Nikon D80 and absolutely love it. I was greatly let down by this grip in comparison because the old grip held both batteries, while this one only holds the secondary battery.
Excerpt: This is a great addition to my D7100. Vertical shots are much easier on my wrist now and the addition of the MB-D15 fits my hand well. Seems to be well made and fits the camera body tightly with no wiggling. Bottom line . . . money well spent.
Excerpt: After a lot of careful consideration, instead of the Vello BG-N11 battery grip, I've decided go with the Nikon MB-D15 grip for my D7200. The quality on the MB-D15 is simply unmatchable. The price is obviously a bit high for just a battery grip but it's well worth it.
Excerpt: I have owned grips on every camera I have ever owned dating back to film. Most recently this includes a D200, D7000 and now a D7200. Prior to the MB-D15, grips ran in the $150 range. This one is quite a bit more. So what do you get for its asking price?
Cons: Adds weight to camera, Not Rock Solid To Camera
