I strongly recommend considering this add-on. As a side benefit, you place two batteries in the compartment, so it effectively doubles the amount of shooting you can do at one sitting. If I were to suggest any further changes for Canon to make, it would be to allow the grip to be plugged in to re-charge the batteries without the necessity of removing them from the grip. All-in-all a very worthy addition to my EOS 7D.
I was pleased with the price of the grip. I seem to remember the 5D grip costing more at the time of its purchase. The benefits of the grip go beyong the initial capability to house two batteries (or a battery cartridge containing 6 AA batteries!). I enjoy having something substantial to hold onto while handling my camera, and it provides somewhat of a shelf for your small finger to rest on. Additionally, it offers you the same controls as the camera has on the top right edge: the shutter button, the previously mentioned M Fn. button, the dial for changing shutter speed, etc., the AF-On button, the AF selection button, and the exposure lock * button, eliminating the need to awkwardly reach over the camera in a vertical shooting scenario.
As I read on the review for the 5D MK II grip prior to purchasing it, the grip facilitates vertical shooting in such a way that users are more likely to take these shots and get that portrait composition that works better for some subjects and gives a unique perspective on some as well. If it's easier to shoot landscape style shots, that's what the majority of a person's pictures will be. With this grip providing you the same access to controls as a horizontal shot, you can just as easily add vertical shots to your portfolio. The grip also conveniently allows you to store the original battery compartment door inside the original battery compartment, so it will be there (not at home in a box) should you decide to remove the grip and pack light.
I tend to agree with those who say that once you get a grip for one of your cameras, it'll be hard to be without one for the rest of the cameras you purchase. I have no experience with off-brand products, and I know that people say you're paying for the name on this, but I come from the school that you get what you pay for, even if that means you have to pay for the name on top of the quality. These are electronics and it is rather difficult to get your money back out of them, so I would recommend getting what you want the first time instead of coming to realize that the "just as good for less" product doesn't cut it and then paying for this name brand and using the off-brand for a paper weight. Just my two cents though, and its your money so spend it how you like!
