DSTE D800 GRIP , the BEST?
Is there More compairs vs the Pixel grip?

Strange to me there is not more talk about this DSTE D800 grip. vs the Pixel grip

http://www.ebay.com/...284?pt=US_Camera_Battery_Grips&hash=item2a1fd021dc

1) When looking at the picture, it looks like it has a Metal PIN , And has the same grove in the grip as the Nikon original? tripod plate compatability?

2) Does 8 AA Batteries AND the D4 battery, well maybe not, BUT it's 3900mAh which is almost double the D4 battery ??? ... That would be a feature no other grip can claim.
But, that knock off large battery might be good enough.

Am I the only one that wants MORE battery power than I had on the D700/D3 not less!

3) More importantly ... Does the dials and buttons have a "Clicky" feel ?

If this is improved over the Pixel , How can this not be the best alt D800 grip out there.

4) Does it screw on the D800 Solid/tight ?

5) No battery drain when not in use?

6) Battery life feedback on D800 OK?

7) at this point the 6fps in DX is probably a given.

Thank you for the Feedback,
HG
