Re: No battery grip for R7 - why?

For reference, I looked at the Sony a9 grip. No pins. The battery compartment and the tripod screw are 2 points of contact, which if built well is enough to stop any rotation. They can also have slightly raised lip at the edges to further increase stability

Having said that, this is just a point about viability, not any indication of whether a grip is coming. The battery door not being easily removable is another hint that Canon may not have any plans for a grip

Interesting. Then it would be the first for Canon. But then again, it took them what... 20 years to realize that the location of the power switch should be in a place where it easily can be handled with a one-hand grip only.
