#15. "RE: Battery grip for D7100" In response to In response to 14 Tue 07-May-13 07:22 AM by km6xz

....the D7100 and the MB-D15 are partially magnesium. The whole top half of the grip, as well as the tray is plastic.
Is it really 4-6 times more functional, to be worth 4-6 times more? I would rather put the saved money towards a lens. I can't imagine what a $250 grip would do better than a $50 one since my first camera with one has over 100,000 clicks and the grip still performs and looks like new.
