I, for one, have never heard of a case where a third-party grip damaged a camera. Not saying cannot happen, just I've never hear of it.
You still get the same functions with a 3-party grip. However, the rear command dial of my off-brand MB-D11 works in reverse when compared to the body dial.
I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
