Which may well all be quite true but even my good friend Kunio would be unable to give me the kind of discount that I currently enjoy from Nikon Direct, even if he'd had the genuine grip in stock. Even so, I've had a tee-shirt printed that says in bold letters "GENUINE NIKON GRIP... NOT A CHEAP AND NASTY COPY INTENDED TO MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A WEALTHY D3 OWNER' that I wear when out and about in the big city... with winter coming, maybe I should consider a similar patch for my leather; I'm all about fashion.
