5D3 Battery grip
Not sure if the old grips fits, but the new one is magnesium and also weather sealed...needless to say, way more expensive as well!
All of Canon's grips for the Xd and XXd series have been magnesium. Nothing new here with the exception of better ergonomics and additional controls.
To answer the OP, from what I have heard the old grip is not compatible.
