if the grip is that bad to you please return the camera and get something that suits you.

Good advice Siir, but the choice of cameras today is not unlimited. If I want to stay with Canon, full frame, highest resolution for landscapes, and excellent AF at last for all other shooting conditions, what other choice do I have?

Used 1Ds-III.

Or why not just get a 5D2? The center AF point and AI Servo is actually pretty darn good, even for sports. If you shoot a lot of sports, yeah, you want something better and more configurable.

I hope Canon would announce a competitive specs camera (3D perhaps) this year, but based on the 60D-7D-5D3 trend, they probably will screw up the 3D grip too. So I am pushed hard by Canon to step on the yellow brick road leading over to the dark side...

Good luck with that. Coming from Canon, I have never picked up any Nikon body and been anything other than utterly confounded.
