Currently, I shoot airshows (remote control and full scale ) with my gripped 7DM2. I take thousands of pictures and it does a great job. I had hoped the R7 would be a viable replacement for my 7DM2, but if a solid, preferably Canon grip is not an option, then a R7 will not work for me. There's no way I plan to keep a pocket full of batteries with me at every airshow to feed a naturally power hungry mirror-less camera. If a battery grip is not an option, then this is an inexplicable miss on Canon's part, especially for a sports and wildlife oriented camera.

I also shoot air shows using my 300 f2.8 IS II + 1.4xIII.

There is a lot that is attractive about the R7, but why they don't make a grip for it makes no sense. The R7 is small, and a grip would be helpful with my lens attached, as I hand hold my cameras while photographing aircraft in flight. And I don't like the idea of having to change batteries during a performance.

But, I placed a pre-order for the R7. I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work for my type of shooting then I'll look at the R5.
