After purchasing the Pentax K5, I decided to get this grip - the real Pentax BG4. What a pleasure it was to take this out of the box and wheel it onto my camera. The fit and finish are impeccable and the button/wheel action mirrors the camera's own. It's also worth noting that the rubberized sections have a nicer look and texture. I believe this product will last a long time.
For those on the fence regarding either the genuine or counterfeit grip I recommend the genuine artifact. I sympathize with you regarding the high cost but, then again, you did purchase a $1500 camera.
- The grip is plastic, not magnesium alloy but is tough, well-balanced and feels like the latter.
- The grip is waterproof whereas the imitations are not
- The tripod mount thread is off-center as it is on the imitation.
A couple of things to note:
*The grip is weather sealed, but is made of touch plastic, not magnesium alloy like the camera
*The grip comes with a AA battery holder and a Li-Ion holder - the Li-Ion holder can also hold a spare SD card. This model does not allow you to store the mini remote like for previous Pentax cameras
*I always tell people that Pentax is geared for the photographer and thinks of the little things. For example, the grip can store the protective nub for the contacts of the grip and the rubber contact cover off the camera! This way you don't' lose anything. I know of no other manufacturer that pays attention to that level of detail.
Is is a bit much for what it is - sure. However, it is well worth it. Highly recommended.
Take my word on this. Where it can be very tempting to buy a far less expensive grip, my experience as well as countless other reviewers who tried the 3rd party grips, prove that you'd be wasting your money on the knockoff brands and are better off forking over the $$ for the genuine Pentax grip. You won't be sorry.
