For starters, The grip arrived very promptly considering I live in N.Ireland. The box itself arrived undamaged and the contents were all surrounded with bubble wrap inside the battery grip box itself. Upon connecting the grip to the base of the camera, it has a 2 dial locking system, " which is great, whereas some grips have only 1 ". The aperture dial and shutter dial on the grip are slightly stiffer than on the camera but they will probably loosen up over time. The AE-L / AF-L on the grip has to be set in the camera settings if you're using "BACK BUTTON FOCUSING", (F9 in the controls menu). Now the grip "even without the extra Nikon EN-EL15 battery inserted into it", adds more weight to the camera, more than I expected. Another point! if you're using a heavyish lens with the grip on, say a "Sigma 10-20mm", it will tilt over onto the end on the lens as it didn't before, "So be careful how you set your camera down". It will take a bit of getting used to with your fingers as there is a lot more camera body to get used to. All in all, this is a great grip for the price. Well worth the money.....

P.S I have now fully charged the extra battery and it goes to the full 100% charge and upon examination, appears to be the genuine battery with correct holograms and all made by sony, heres the link for it if interested.....http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0045KGZOG/ref=pe_385721_37038051_TE_dp_1

Hope this helps in deciding both grip and battery.

To start with, the package was waiting for me when I got home from holiday, so far so good. On opening the box, the grip was well packaged and no loose bits were found.

The grip itself is of a good quality, the electrical contacts that attach to the camera are protected by a removable cover, and there is a a recess for the receiver cover from the camera. On attaching the grip, make sure it is put on evenly so the electrical contacts aren't damaged. Others have mentioned a gap between the grip and camera, so to solve this, once you've attached the grip, simply push down on the grip and tighten the locking screw. This should also ensure the grip is detected by the camera ( a symbol showing 'BP' will appear next to the battery icon in the top LCD display).

Controls are in the form of a front and back dial, AE button, joystick type control to move the focus point in the view finder, and a switch to lock this function. To enable the use of the AE button, go to f9 in the cameras Custom Settings menu and choose the option there. Whilst on the subject of settings, somewhere in the cameras setup menu is the option to change which battery is used first (the one in the grip or in the battery). By default this is set to the grip.
The shutter button is very crisp and definite, possibly more so than the one on the actual camera. The front control dial on the grip is very stiff to use initially, however I suspect that this will loosen up over time.

When I first saw this grip advertised, I was very dubious at the price compared to the Nikon grip. However, initial observations show that there are no obvious problems with it. The quality is good, all the controls work fine and there are no problems to speak of.

I've had an annoying itch. Having bought this 3rd party battery grip I've been left feeling that however good it is (it's flawless) I really wanted the proper Nikon product.
Well my Nikon MB-D15 Multi-Power Battery Pack arrived today and comparing the two I cannot find a difference other than the Nikon sticker on the bottom of the 'real' one. The weight, function, textures and controls seem identical, as if this item were produced in the same factory.
I'm torn between returning the real thing and keeping it. I must be shallow because I think I'll keep it, for the sticker and the 'peace of mind' only.
The price difference is about £250 which is plain ridiculous. This is more than good value.

This review and the rating are based on the comparison to a D300 battery grip by the same manufacturer. I am comparing this grip to the D300 one, because I just received this grip and it came in the same box as the D300 one I had. The D300 grip was amazing, the built quality was great and the fit on the body was tight and secure. This grip, however, although made by the same manufacturer, doesn't impress me as much.

The built quality is almost as good as the other one; I am saying almost because it is made from the same durable plastic and the rubbers are grippy, but as opposed to the D300 grip, they look as they could start to peel off in time, depending on how heavy you use it, because the edges are not perfectly glued to the body. Now on the downside, the fit is a bit loose, and there is a tiny bit of space left between the grip and the camera body. My biggest concern, however, is that the bit with the electric contacts, that slots into the D7100, tends to wiggle around a little. Also, when you want to take the grip off the camera and start to unscrew it, it starts to loosen up unevenly, from the left side, and the part with the contacts tends to remain connected to the D7100. You need to apply quite a bit of force to remove it, reason why the whole thing feels like it could break and what I am concerned about is that it might damage the electric contacts on the D7100. I never felt this way with the D300 grip.

On a positive note, it functions as it should, all the buttons/controls work fine and the ergonomics as well as the way the camera looks are improved. Plus...it only costs £26..

As I just got this, it's too soon to speak about what will happen in time, but these are my first thoughts.
