It's worth every penny, the camera feels like a weapon with the L-plate and grip mounted. That's just an added bonus though, I bought it for improved ergonomics which it definitely helps with. I will use this camera mostly (95% of the time) on a tripod but the grip will be nice for times that I don't.

The great thing about either of the grips is that they also are tripod plates, at least for RRS plates (although I believe both are also Arca compatible). Even though I shot on tripod a fair amount I like the grip because it makes the choice easy.

Good number of people already have tripod plates. The plates are not necessarily compatible with Arca standards. Simple or dedicated plate can be used with any camera there is. Here is my rig using Gitzo plate. I can use it with any camera I own(ed) or I can stash it away for the time when I need it.:

I only have one Milch grip at the moment, I think I'm going to order the RRS grip as well so I have a grip + L plate for each camera and can compare.
