The grip at $350 is still way to expensive for me. I'm willing to pay top dollar for MK lll bodies during the first release, but not for the new grip. That's where I'm determined to save money.
After I purchased the MK ll on sale last December for under $2000 I bought a Zeikos grip for under $60 and it works fine and looks just like the Canon model. $60 !!
Does anyone remember how long it took for quality, non-Canon grips, to hit the market last time around ?
