Re: No battery grip for R7 - why?

If you study the battery cover up close, there is a small slit on the shaft itself that holds the battery cover. If I compare with the battery cover on my 7D, this slit does not exist. If you open the battery cover on the 7D with the slider, the shaft is affected exactly where the slit is on the R7 shaft. I think they have saved on the slider and made the slot to remove the battery cover with, for example, the nail.

That is not to say that it will be a battery grip, but the door will probably be removable.
