AA Lithium batteries are much lighter that Alkaline or re-chargeables - cost more but big weight saving!

I also use the pixel MB-D12 grip with 8 Eneloops AAs when I need the extra speed/heft - oh boy that was heavy! The whole D800 + grip + 8AA + 70-200/2.8 VR2 + TC20E III setup weights almost 7.5 pounds.

D800/E seems to be a bit more responsive in 1.2x mode. Not sure if that's real or just the placebo effect.
