Re: Disadvatage? Grip problems

So I am seeing this grip with a tall tower. The means to me you have to take out the battery and detach the door.

I think on some other cameras you keep the battery inside and can use that battery in addition to the one in the grip, giving you a significantly extended shooting time, especially for video.

That is a disadvantage and a design flaw. Also, attaching and detaching this is going to be less easy than the "drop off" type of grip where you just spin the wheel and it falls off and you are good to go shooting. This one is going to have the door problem and battery.

Nikon is going backwards in their design?

Concerning and disappointing.

What's the rumor on the Mk III versions?

The older design had better contact and less flexing than the 1/2 grip design!  I'm happy Nikon is going back to the older design that had a "Stalk" on the BG!

Just way to much flexing on D500/D850 with BG and 70-200mm lens attached!
