The biggest mystery to me is why would they put the on off switch on the left side of the camera?

I worked that out when I bought the G9 with battery pack - here the on/off swtch is very handily placed in front of the Landscape mode shutter button but completely remote and inaccessible when the camera is used in Portrait mode grip.

Placing the on/off switch on the left of the camera body just makes it a little bit awkward in both grip orientations instead of ideal/stupid as it is on the G9.

The simple solution is two on-off switches

good idea that...but....and it's a big but.........why is there no notch bottom left?

Nikon hasn't got the technology to do that.

i wonder how big that D5 would be without a pentaprism?

Wouldn't look professional without a pentaprism. Even if it didn't have one, they'd need to put a big bump on the top.

maybe they could take a notch off the grip and stick it on top?

So a bit of "corner cutting" to keep the price down then
