Question Regarding Canon 6D's Grip: BG-E13
Mar 11, 2014

I've been searching quite a bit but couldn't find any solid answers.

Is the BG-E13 grip plastic or magnesium alloy?

And while I know weather sealing is generally compromised, does the BG-E13 have any weather sealing?

I know there are plenty of good third-party alternatives, and I've already got one selected. I just wanted to know if there were some compelling reasons for choosing Canon - I'd be willing to drop the extra cash if I knew the grip was made of metal. I am also aware that most third-party grips don't work with RRS's L-plate, but that won't be an issue for me because if I got an L-plate it'd be something generic.
