    Eh price will probably come down a lot from that - for some reason Camera manufacturers love to put really high retail prices on their main websites, even though retail prices in the actual market are often far lower than them - about the only time they are accurate is when the item is brand new to the market or when stocks are critically low (normally when at the end of a production run).

    That said still $600 is a lot, esp now that they have to compete against the (often far more feature rich) cheap offbrand options on ebay

    Wow, that's a lot money for a grip especially you don't gain any higher fps using it.

    I'm still confused why Nikon does the whole FPS gain with some of their grips - would seem like a hangover from the film days (canon just gives you the FPS with the camera :)

    From what I've read you do. 6fps in DX mode with the grip. I think 5fps without.

    Battery power. More batteries with the grip compared to the single battery in the camera... same as film days.
