No, you are wrong! It is not just a grip. The life of the camera is hanging on this item. Take a case of a wedding photographer who has 2 cameras suspended to the BlackRapid FastenR-3 hardware. If the tripod socket is not able to carry the combined weight, then you can kiss your 5D3 and your lens goodbye!
Come on... do you really know any photographer use a serious alternative grip like Meike, Pixel, Vello, Phottix, etc who had such problem?
