For those interested there are Pixel vertex and Meike battery packs available for the D800 and E bodies available on eBay, I find that the body fits my long fingered hands very well unlike previous non pro Nikon's which required a battery pack to feel comfortable. I will probably buy one of these for the occasions I need 6fps in DX for motorsport, but will not leave it fitted at all times. These appear to be the same item sold under different names. I know these will not be the same quality as the Nikon original but will be useful for occasional use with AA batteries.

"I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure."

In looking at specs, it seems that the 'off brand' units use 6 AA batteries instead of the 8 the Nikon unit does... has anyone purchased one toand can they verify...???
