Hi,

i am in for a R7, but i am wondering if you will be able to attach a battery grip for it?

I would make the body more balanced with big lenses

anyone a clue if this will be possible?

Look closely at the pictures of the battery door. I notice a couple of things. First, I cannot see a lever to remove it as on other Canon cameras. Second, I see no contact cover. Finally, there are no holes in the bottom of the body for locking pins. On the face of it that does suggest no grip was intended. However, I could be wrong and that the pics are just poor. It could be that there are connections for a grip deep in the battery port. Only time will tell. For me I am not worried as I don’t use grips anymore.

Some reviews do suggest there is a grip coming though.
