Re: What about the D7000?

Which DX photographers need a vertical grip?

Which FX photographers need a vertical grip?

Those that take pictures of people. I think there are many more photographers that take pictures of people than there are that take pictures of birds.

Do bird photographers need it?

Does anybody? In fact there have been a few who have asked for it.

I guess sports photographers could benefit from this too.

Yes, and all those photographers can benefit from a tripod, so shall we have that built in too?

The whole point of the D300 (and D700) are that they are pro cameras (or at least semi-pro) but much lighter.

I think it would be a serious mistake to load the camera with extra weight not needed by most photographers most of the time. And I'm prepared to bet good money that most potential users of the D300 don't want a grip, or at least don't want it most of the time.
