MB-D200: Necessary?
Feb 27, 2007

I've been looking into purchasing the Nikon MB-D200 battery grip and was wondering if anybody has experience using it. I take nearly all of my pictures in RAW with the VR on my 18-200mm turned to on. I've heard the VR drains the battery (I can hear it sucking away life points), but I don't know how significant this drain truly is.

I like the idea of having a new command and sub-command dial along with the side-mounted shutter release, as well.

I have read that the D200's battery door must be removed to attach the D200. I'm assuming that this won't be a daunting task.

If anybody has any recommendations I'd love to here them.
