The character Tim from the former TV show "Home Improvment" (played by actor Tim Allen) would definitely have liked the battery grip on his D700 if he had one...but something would likely have exploaded when he modified the wiring to juice it up even more.
That said, I prefer the integrated-grip bodies when push comes to shove...which incidentally have better balance and are slightly more compact and lighter in weight than the D700 with MB-D10.
But if someone wants real weight, they need to try an F3 with MD-4...
