Re: 3rd party battery grip for Sony A77

i have this grip since friday, my first impressions are

- Not magnegnesium alloy body, but the plastic with sheet inside
- Buttons on the grips are made of soft rubber, completely different than on the A77
- Rollers are of a harder plastic than the on A77, but go well
- shutter rsponsive as shutter on A77
- fits well with A77
- Coating of plastic is similar to the Sony, but there are little bigger tears
- Rubber coating - stampings are stronger, feeling more comfortable than on the Sony,
- Joystick is nearly 100% identical by treatment and the response against the A77ke
- All the button works as expected, camera recognize that there are two batteries, shows the status of the two, the first one wears out, then the second
- Hold on to BG while I can not judge
