Got my Zeikos for D800 today... Tested with AA and EN-EL15 - everything is working as with the original MB-D12 that I had bought with my D800 in March, but sold it on eBay with in a couple of weeks due to ridiculous price tag... This one came from B&H for mere $76.95... Functionality is the same, wheels are not rubberized, but feel nice. Buttons and controls are fine. It is feels kinda plastic on the sides, but rubber is very nice and soft at the actual grip area.

All in all - very nice grip, feels almost the same as the original for much less money. I will use it occasionally for studio shooting for convenience of the vertical shutter release button and extra grip with 70-200 lens, so for me it should work just fine... But for heavy duty full time shooting nothing beats the integrated D3s-D4 grips... Even with original - I had weird feelings when putting the camera with grip on the tripod... so I would never use it on the tripod or with my Blackrapid Dual R-Straps (its just me), but other then that - it is a great value...
