My simplistic opinion....
You've got a $2500 body..why put a non OEM item, which has electronics within it ??? on the base of your body??? Good move on the used BH item...they stand behind anything they sell...great place to buy goodies !!!
I'm silly in that way....I buy only OEM stuff that attaches to my equipment that has any electircal components....e.g. batteries, etc.. I only buy Nikon...why? when something bad happens, I have the receipts and products from NIKON...they money saved will result be quickly lost in the event of a problem..I want my Camera to "work" when I want it..
My non OEM stuff is built specifically by other top quality manufs....pocketwizards, Sigma lenses...for example, I purchased the SD-9 battery packs...yep $200...but, I'm placing it on a $600 SB910....I just want it to work properly....you just don't know what you are getting when you go 3rd party....yeah, yeah, I know it's all made in the same place (LOL).
