audijam: i have the same conclusion for Vertax BG-11. well built but the feedback from the buttons aren't the same as Canon legit copy and yeah Vertax is of plastic so it does feel different. however....it is still great value for its price.
It works fine. But it feels like a plastic attachment, whereas the Nikon grip feels like its part of the body. If you plan to keep it permanently attached to the body the Nikon grip is a better choice.If you just need a grip for vertical shooting the Vertax is a real good deal.
The small size and light weight of this gear should be an advantage.Image quality should be fine. How well the focus captures action, we will see.
Jim Radcliffe: I used Canon gear for 10 years, starting with the D30 and ending with the 5D MKII a year or so ago. I have to say that I really see nothing outstanding in any way with these photos. They look like they could have been taken with almost any camera. There is no signature, nothing special to my eye.
Exactlly. A camera is a camera is a camera.
That Olympus OM-D is one sweet camera
