    Does the frame rate improve any from 6.3 f/s with the battery grip?

    No it does not. It wont slow down like when you have low battery power. Just gives you somthing fancy to hold on to and extends shooting time

    Also gives you shutter release and extra buttons in the corner, so that you don't have to crank your wrist/arm when shooting vertically.

    It also gives your pinky finger on your right hand somewhere to rest as well. I don't have big hands at all, but even I found that without a grip my little finger would be waving around in the air - or rubbing up against the corner of the camera, which is annoying. A grip gives you that extra little space.

    Battery life is also better in a grip - running of two batteries at once means that you can shoot for ages without having to worry about changing batteries -- but it does mean that you want to carry 2 spare batteries for when it does die.

    The vertical controls are also great to have - even if youre not doing much/any people portrait work there is plenty of scope out there for the portrait aspect.

    although to be fair, you can use a battery grip with just one battery.
