Re: No battery grip for R7 - why?

I asked canon if they are going to make a grip and they said:

"We have no plans at this time for a battery grip for the EOS R7 as the camera is not designed to use one."

So it looks like that's the end of it. The battery door probably can't be removed and the pins for the buttons are probably not in the battery compartment. It would require the electrical contacts to communicate with the camera. I assume by saying "not designed to use one" they are saying it can't.

This is a bit disappointing. Have to think about it but I think this is too big of omission for me to purchase it. After all the must have two card slots a joystick and shoot 8k continuously rants on the web not sure why they have made a similar mistake.
