I've stuck with 4.0 until now, didn't try any of the RCs. 4.1 Downloading now, maybe I can start shooting RAW on my 5D3 again :)

That sucks, next time ask them to hold it for the day. I always do that.

Yes I asked them to hold it and gave them my name, problem is that they actually had none in stock, so nothing to hold, yet they still told me it was in stock and they were holding one for me lol.

Cancelled my B&H and Amazon pre-orders and I picked one up at Pitman photo in Miami for about $8 more than what I would have paid at B&H with 2 day delivery.
I almost bought one from The Pro Shop For Photographers in West Palm Beach, I called, they told me they had it in stock, $379 + tax, after waiting for it for a while I said what the heck I'll get it so I asked him to hold one for me, drove the 40+ minutes there and there were none, another salesperson came and said "oh yeah we sold the last one last week" ..... >:( Thanks for wasting my time ..... lol

I ended up cancelling my 2 pre-orders for the GP-E2 (Amazon and B&H) I'll stick to using my dedicated datalogger and keep my hotshoe free for Cyber Commander or 600EX-RT and also keep the $260 in my pocket for now :)

My b&h order still shows back ordered :(

With the new battery door design I wonder if you can still put a cf card in it like previous grips I should have looked at that when I had it in hand lol oh well

Some chimping (very little though) and a couple of videos too, but all JPEG if that makes a difference.

Doubles the amounts of shots (I think it's 900 or 950 so 1800-1900) FYI I've gotten over 1200 shots from a single battery on a single charge. FPS does not change with grip.

Well I went and checked out the BG-E11, comes with two trays (one for LP-E6s one for AA batteries which was the one pre-installed) and also a pouch looks like it is to "store" the tray that you are not using.
The store wanted $379 for it and would not budge, which was $50+ more than my B&H order so I passed. They had two in stock at their store (West Palm Beach, FL) if anyone wants one for that price.
The grip has a real solid feel and the buttons are a perfect match to the ones on the body. The joystick is very well positioned and (for some reason I didn't know) it also has the M.fn button on it too.

I will call around tomorrow to see if any more stores got any. This place got the 5D3 in stock on March 19th, but a "bigger" more well known store in Miami (Pitman Photo) didn't get theirs until the 26th !

I called the Canon retailer closest to me (which happens to be the place I bought my 5D3 also on March 22nd, even though they had received them and started selling them on the 19th !) and they told me that they got a couple in stock. I had already talked to them about getting it price matched to B&H at $349 and the manager had accepted and put a note in the computer in my customer file and printed a copy of it for me "just in case" he said lol. I didn't have a chance to go in today before they closed, but I asked if they could keep one for me. Sure I'll have to pay tax on it, but for $20.xx more and I get it before my Birthday this week end so I can use it on our little "vacation" it'll be perfect. I forgot to ask if they heard anything about the GP-E2 (although they already told me they won't be able to match the $269 price on it). But they did get a couple BG-E11 in on Friday (yesterday since it's 1:42AM here in South Florida) so they're here in the US, I'm expecting to see Adorama/B&H/etc start shipping them soon :)

honestly i would buy the canon grip if i could walk into a local NY dealer and pick one up, but if there is a 3rd party one in china first, cheaper, ill take it and will probably be just as satisfied.

Well, I am able to walk in to my "local" photo store and buy a Canon one, maybe the NY stores have them too (although my B&H order still says backordered) so they really are here.

I also liked the old design, less parts to loose or break. But it was necessary for the joystick I believe.
