Re: Zeikos Battery Grip for Nikon D800/D800E? UPDATE!

Well, here is what I discovered with Zeikos grip and D800:

- When grip attached without battery - camera won't work blinking dead battery even if the battery in camera is full and set first in priority...

- Wen you put EN-EL15 into the grip - it resets number of shots in battery to zero!!!

Well, I am getting a little nervous about these issues so it goes back to B&H... I guess if I am going to really need a grip - I am going to spend 5 times more and get back the original... Zeikos is too glitchy right now and nobody knows what is going to happen after next firmware updates (I red some stories when aftermarket grips quit working after updates)

Just FYI for those who are thinking about getting Zeikos grip for D800/D800E...
