Like the MB10 the grip feels sturdy and all controls work well. The battery compartment comes with a tray for AA batteries and another for Nikon's battery. This will also get you the 6 FPS in DX mode. But the price is insulting. There's just no other way to look at it.
guessing it's made out of a lighter metal (magnesium; same as body?) Perhaps that's what gives it the feeling
that it is made out of plastic to some. It is cool to the touch, so it is most certainly metallic. That said,
there is nothing about the item that felt so divinely sculptured that it should fetch 450 dollars.
I was hoping I would get some incredible packaging or unreal, solid build quality (read: engineered by Porsche).
Instead it is solid but not remarkable. I do not feel like I spent 450 dollars, I feel like I spent maybe 175-200.
Very disappointing. Of course, it is obvious Nikon is able to get this price for it, as that is what I ended up paying.
If a third party is able to make a high quality grip for 250-300 (which is more than possible, trust me), Nikon will not
sell many of these.
Aside from the absurd pricing, it works just fine. Just not 450 dollars fine.
I bought this party because I needed better control over the camera and have a disability with my hands so needed it to operate the camera more effectively. Thats basically all you get except for 2 FPS more and extended battery life.
If you bought a D800 I highly recommend you wait and purchase an aftermarket one when they become available.
I Currently own a Grip from Meike for my D7000. While it does everything the nikon does, it often times stops giving power, or shows wrong battery info (pulling battery out and putting it back it fixes it for a while or until power off) This was ultimately the main reason I bought the nikon, because it ALWAYS has to work for me, I'm a combat Photographer for the army and dead batteries are not a easy fix for me.
I knew that the Nikon would be better build quality however, I am still amazed at how much of a difference the quality is. Do I think the build quality was worth the 368$ I paid for a new one?
YES I DO.
Every single bit, every moving part, every still part feels and looks like it was built to outlast me. I have no doubts about putting this on my camera and hanging onto only it.
The locking wheel has no wobble but feels like it has a good amount of tension, it does not free spin or come loose.
The multi-select command Analog is stiff and clicks in each direction, it feels great. My Meike is super loose and does not feel good.
The paint on the AF-ON button is the same quality and kind as the buttons on the camera, No rubbing off! my Meike has no paint on its button anymore.
The shutter button feels the same as the camera, perfect.
The front/rear dials are the same as on the body of the camera, they feel perfect.
On my Meike the screw that the camera is mounted to the grip by is loose, I can grab it with my fingers and shake it around or free spin it. I CAN NOT do this on the Nikon, Its so rugged and well built.Read more ›
Rather than boring you with a lengthily discussion, I can summarize it by saying that I saw no difference either mechanical or electrical between the two. Both function identically, both are strong and look appropriate on the bottom of the camera. I returned the MB-d12, I can NOT justify it. If this one wears out, I can buy 2 more and still have money left.
