There are a few more drawbacks I hadn't considered.
- I don't have LARGE hands so that is a consideration.
- Decreased tripod stiffness when using the MB-D100 is not good.
- I already have a mechanical shutter realse cable (20+ years old no less) that works just fine, so the 10-pin cable isn't needed.
- Again, the voice-recorder may never be used, but maybe someday...

I do like the extended battery time. Though it seems like forever with just one EL-EN3. I had considered the AA option as a backup since I have two sets of very good rechargeables (1800mah NiMH). But after what was said above, it seems like a last resort option at best.

I guess I will move the MB-D100 from my NEED list to WANT.
