Has anyone seen a battery grip for the R5 from a 3rd party source? There's just no way I'm going to spend $300+ for a Canon R5 battery grip.

I sympathize with you. I was always willing to pay the price for a genuine OEM grip when the OEM grips were made of magnesium and the third-party grips were polycarbonate.

But the OEM grips for my EOS R cameras are just polycarbonate as well, so I grimaced hard shelling out that money...and only because there were no third-party grips available. Comparing them closely to third-party grips available for other cameras, I see no advantages.

But I see third-party grips are available for the EOS R now. Considering that the EOS R5 and R6 use the same grip and that they are both hot sellers, I have to expect a third-party grip for them should come long soon.
