Does anyone know for certain if the Canon grips are made with a metal frame?  It occurs to me that since I started using Black Rapid grips, all of the wait of the camera and lens will be hanging from the tripod mount on the bottom of the grip...one made of plastic only concerns me.

Yes the Canon grip will be made of the same metal as the body.

I just got my BG-E11 and it is rock solid.  I'm sure this knock-off is just as good for the money, but I doubt it has the same magnesium alloy shell that the BG-E11 has. 
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

Canon's new grip, the BG-E11, looks like a big improvement over the BG-E6 for about $120 more.
I'm not crazy about spending over $700 for my two bodies. I hope the controls on the Chinese version work as well as my $58 Zeikos.

These guys are great... They said they will ship the Grip on June/10th and they did.

Please let us know what it's like when you've played with it.
I'm not too keen on spending $350 or so for something I only use every now and again either.
