Thank you for your input. I whole heartedly agree about the quality of Nikon products, not to mention the expense incurred with Nikon products! LOL. Some times I truly feel put out by the Nikon prices and feel we are getting gouged but that is neither here nor there. While I am doing well I no longer feel that I have unlimited deep pockets for NAS so I try to manage with third party products where I feel they will help but not sacrifice image quality.

I have been shooting lots of political events lately in an effort to supply my fledging event photography business with some portfolio samples and after a long day last week I realized my right wrist was starting to kill me from all the vertical shots. I sure miss using my F5 with the integrated vertical grip and shutter release and will never understand why Nikon omits this capability from a $3000 semi-pro camera (probably to sell more MB-D10's).

Anyway, I wound up procuring at BHPHOTO a Vello Vertical Grip for roughly $70 with the same features as the MB-D10 from Nikon which is priced at $250. It arrives tomorrow so hopefully it will work out ok. It had plenty of five star reviews and thats what I look for.

Thanks again and I hope your are feeling better!
