After my recent trip to Kenia and a four-day safari, I thought I'd get the R7 for shooting wildlife/ sports in the future and attach my 100-500mm to it because I actually did not enjoy using the RF extender with its very limiting flexibility (Canon really dropped the ball here imho). Turns out, the R7 does have a battery grip... how on earth should someone shoot with 100-500mm or one of the big whites without an BG? Sry Canon, not buying the R7 and now selling the extender...

I use the R5 (tiny bit taller) witha 100-500mm with no problems. I don't feel the need for a battery grip at all (which would add weight to the combination). On safari I've alway shot resting on a bean bag, the weight / size of the camera hardly comes into it. The big issue it the weight of the big whites and lifting them up and down. If I get there again I think I'd leave the big lens at home and use the 100-500mm. It would be far better for my back neck and shoulders.

I sold my 4-year-old, bought-mint-used R for $1300 a month ago, just in the nick of time I guess!

I do feel the need for a BG when I'm shooting vertically (portrait style). It is just way more relaxing when you have a shutter button on the right hand side, especially with a RF 100-500mm.

On safari I've alway shot resting on a bean bag, the weight / size of the camera hardly comes into it.
That's what I use(d) too, it actually helped a lot especially when shooting horizontally (landscape mode). Still there are plenty of cases where I do need a BG...

Looking at the photographers in Masai Mara, 8 out 10 (I did actually count ) with a big white or telezoom lens used a BG.

I just don't get what advantage Canon might by NOT offering a BG...
If someone doesn't want/ need it: fine, I get that. But leaving people who want one with any option...whew, just not a customer friendly offering...

Where I come from, "my 4-year old" means my 4-year old child. I hope there is a language difference here.

None your business Alaska
The R7 showed in stock when logged in to the CPS website earlier this week. I placed the order, the email they sent me said it was in stock. However when checking order status it said "Backordered".

I called Canon Sales the next morning and it was indeed backordered. I went ahead and canceled as I do not want an open order.

Until some confirms they have one in hand I would call this one a Rumor.

Presumably they ran the numbers and concluded the cost of design, manufacture, and distribution was unlikely to yield much profit. I can't think of another likely explanation.

I ordered one on Launch day from WEX in the UK, it was in my hands on Friday.

Shooting vertically is about the only time I want a BG especially when I tore the rotator cuff on my right shoulder.

Does the BG have to be made/sourced by Canon? I'm pretty sure other manufacturers will make one.
If the battery door is not designed to be easily removable/replaceable (as at least one forum member here reported), that could be problematic.

Can't help you except to say that I'm in the same position. I emailed B&H and the CS reply was that they didn't know when they were getting "more". I ordered at 7:30AM EDST on introduction day.

Same. I think 'preferred' folks get theirs first, that would be my guess. I ordered mine at almost the exact same time as you.

Maybe try a smaller retailer. I got mine with no problem on June 23rd - I ordered it a few weeks earlier.
