Making the switch over to Canon is becoming more appealing with every new product release. Nikon has completely lost its way. It's sad to see a company previously known for their quality, and for correctly reading the market, to fall so far down the ladder, very sad indeed.

One issue that was not mentioned, is if you purchase Nikon's Grip and opt to use a D4 battery, you must also purchase a charger for the battery. For the record, the charger is $309.00 at Amazon.

In total, if you do the math for Nikon's Grip "MB-D12" ($397), a D4 battery "EN-EL18" ($145) , the Chamber Cover ($30.00), and a D4 battery charger ($309), you're going to be spending $881.00.

I'm all for saving money, but quality does matter. Then again, if you rarely use your grip, you might as well give the Vertax a try and see if you can live with it.

Naturally there are cheaper battery options for Nikon's Grip, but the review did leave out a very important point, when it brought up using the D4 battery in conjunction with Nikon's new D800/E Grip.
