Why pay more? This grip is also offered with batteries for about £10 more. In my view either is a great buy as it is less than half the price of the Canon version and matches the appearance and quality of the accompanying camera perfectly.
The real question is whether or not it is a desirable or necessary accessory? It does provide the opportunity to use AA batteries in an emergency. My prime purpose for buying it was to balance the camera better with heavier lenses and/or a flashgun: it does this perfectly. An advantage that I had not appreciated was the great aid it is to taking photographs in the portrait aspect: it really is an advantage.
Drawbacks? It does increase camera weight and bulk. For me it will be a useful accessory but not one that remains attached to the camera; afer all the range of cameras it fits are good to use and carry because they are light and compact.
