Good grip but the price is high for what it is
on 28 August 2012
Hard to really justify the price for what is basically some bits of moulded plastic.
I paid around £100 odd from a Hong Kong seller, a bit more acceptable price wise.
A quick trip to camerapricebuster reveals 5 years ago the grip was selling for £69 (2007), which is much more reasonable and puzzles as to why the price has increased so much. There is nothing wrong with the grip, build is perfectly fine, works as described. Had I thought about it a bit more I would likely have gone for one of the third party offerings. As a £70-£80 price range (which is where it should be) Nikon can still make quite a good profit for what likely costs very little to manufacture. Saying that, it's nowhere near as expensive as the MB-D11 (£200 odd) or the MB-D12 for the D800 which is an eye watering £300 odd!
