The size and weight of a Buick maybe - but a better MPG!

More seriously, I like the combo, although today I have left the grip at home. Not only does it double the electric capacity of the machine, but it really balances better. Oh, there are even occasions when the grip comes in handy although I don't shoot in portrait orientation: the other day, shooting flowers in my garden, I found myself lying flat on the floor, holding the camera by the grip for balance and clicking on the side button...

And as the Boss (not Bruce, JRP! ) wrote, it is a man's tool! I like the look on people's faces when I tote a D700 with grip, a 80-200/2.8 mounted on it, and a SB-800 in the hot shoe with a small diffuser for height Sort of a definitive "mine's bigger", so to speak! That of course was already the case with the D300, but it was mitigated by the use of DX lenses...
