No Grip for me, however I can think of a reason

Balance on longer heavier lenses like the 70-200mm and beyond can make a smaller camera like the D800 feel front-heavy. The extra weight works sort of like a stablizer.

Personally, one of the reasons I don't like Canon is because they force that Grip-size D4 mammoth camera size on people. I can appreciate it as a counter-balance, that's about it.

The price is also way too high, as others have already said. The good thing is that the battery life on the D800 is so good that instead of 3 batteries, I'm just going to run with 2.
