I see in the pictures of the R3 that the control wheel for the vertical grip that doubles the functions of the wheel near the shutter button, is on the back of the camera. This is the same as the grip for the R5/R6 cameras. I've not had the opportunity to try either of those cameras with a grip as I disliked the form factor for the grips for the 5D IV and 5D III. I think it's the very square shape of them makes them uncomfortable to me. I'm very happy with the shape of the seven different 1 Series bodies I've used, back to the 1n for film. I know people have complained that the vertical toggle is in an odd, low place on the grips for the R5/R6, but I haven't seen anyone talk about the position of that control dial on the back, rather than on the end of the camera as it always was before on both the 5 Series grips and the 1 Series cameras. Thoughts?
