5DII grips are c--p, too.

The grips on the 5DII are also c--p. I own two and one of them had the metal top plate separate from the rest of the grip. Turns out the flimsy plastic support posts that the screws connect to had fallen to pieces.

I had to rebuild the entire grip with epoxy and superglue. I'll never be able to resell it.

For what it is worth, one reason I like a big grip is to allow easier handling of chunky lenses like a 70-200 f/2.8 and  300 f/2.8. And the extra battery. And the vertical release button.
