I have the DSTE grip and two of the 3900 mAh batteries, and it is a real joy. It does have the second release and joystick, and also a second AF-ON button, which is very handy. I love it, and the battery lasts *forever*. I don't shoot in ASC-P mode, so I have no idea bout the 6 fps claim however.

Also, as mentioned, get a L-Bracket. You will need one that accommodates the grip obviously. I have the Kirk bracket that I got from B&H:

I also use both SD and CF cards (as fast as I can get).

Good luck with your new toy!
