What does having all the extra bulk and weight provide that just carrying a spare battery cannot do?

1. When shooting events you can go longer without stopping to change batteries and miss shots, and in some cases do one event without swapping at all.

2. Allows better balance and grip for the bigger lenses

3. Affords you a better hand position/grip for the when shooting portrait orientation because of the vertical shutter release.
