  • The muti selector is nowhere of the same quality as the real unit. When all is said and done this is the one feature that would make me buy the OEM. I usually select the focus point which is on top of the subject (sometimes I use the 3D AF-C feature to do this: it works very well without having to deal with the selector). So being able to switch focus point quickly and reliably matters a lot to me. I'm just hoping that Cameta will be made aware of the feedback and come back with a unit with a better selector. I would then buy the new unit and sell this one. But in any case for the very casual use I make of a grip I can't justify the cost of the Nikon grip.

This is good to know. Might be a deal breaker for me since I use this quite a bit. Is it hard to move the focus point around? Also, what about the AF-ON button, does it feel as solid as the one on the body?

I understand that the Nikon one is THE best one, but is it $340 better? I don't mind the alloy vs 'plastic' body. But I do mind if the buttons and selectors are rendered useless on the third party grips.
