Sony A77 - VG-C77AM Vertical Grip

I have a question or two and observation. First question, does the Sony VG-C77AM vertical grip have a tripod mount on it or are you required to remove it if the camera is going to be mounted to a tripod? I realize I won't necessarily need the vertical grip when using a tripod. I just though it seemed more convenient to make quick use changes in the field without having to mount/dismount the grip.

Second, I have seen great fluctuation in price on the grip at Amazon and Amazon resellers. Over the past week or two it has fallen from the retail price of $299 to as low as $222. Today, Amazon has it for $235. Is there a problem with it or are they just finding it is a less popular accessory and have found they have too much inventory?

Thanks for your thoughts and insight as always!
