Although quite expensive, it is in line with other Fujifilm accessories and is very well built and finished. I am happy to pay extra for the quality and, hopefully, the expected life of such an accessory.
Once fitted the camera handles well and the balance is still well maintained. The extra power boost mode and extra shots you can take are all welcome. Without using power boost mode I easily exceeded 1000 shots and the batteries still had plenty in reserve. My guess is I could have taken at least 1200 or so shots in total. And, of course, vertical mode is much easier. I tend to have trouble getting a horizontal horizon in vertical mode (having to correct it in LR all the time) but this made it much easier since the hold is much more natural
Recommended if you are a serious dedicated XT-2 shooter.
Maybe if I shot sports or portraits, I'd have more respect for the 11fps mechanical burst speed, but I don't. Maybe I'll feel better about it when I get more chance to use it this summer.
Ultimately, the design is very thoughtful, including a little spot to put the pogo pin cover so you don't lose it. I only wish it were more like the X-T1's design and didn't have the additional grip thing as it adds little in the way of extra grip and only looks silly and unfinished. The buttons and dials, however, feel great, just like on the camera body, making a shift from landscape to portrait that much more seamless. If you need any of these features: extended battery life, 11fps burst, headphone monitor, or up to 30 minute recording in 4K, you'll be well served by this addition. Just be fully prepared for the increase in size and weight that's not in any way inconsequential.
Where I deducted one star is weight. This grip is surprisingly hefty. What drew me to the Fuji system over my previous DSLRs was not only the discrete, functional form but how light one's full kit can be. After carrying much heavier systems over the last two plus decades, it is hard to go back to the days of being a camera mule. Adding the grip gives the camera almost a DSLR feel in terms of weight and balance. While Fuji's glass is much lighter compared to equivalent full-frame DSLR glass, the xt2 with booster feels more DLSR than mirrorless. It is not a deal killer for certain assignments, but this grip may stay behind where light, documentary travel work is a must.
