I hardly ever use the vertical shutter release button.
I am sure that most people use it, I do not. Why? I
am used to "contorting my wrist" when I shoot in
portrait mode. I am left eye dominant. So when I
shoot in portrait mode I brace my right wrist against
my forehead and it gives me a good stable platform.

I am deeply thankful for not having to twist my wrist in order to shoot in the vertical position.

It was indeed with a huge sense of relief when I got vertical grips for my D750 and D850 Nikons soon after the purchase of these bodies. The improvements in stability, and comfort were easily and immediately felt.

I do not think others' willingness to bend their wrists is any excuse for Nikon's omission of vertical controls - especially since that omission takes away our choice.
