"RE: D800E on the way."

jezzes chr. are you guys lotto winners, are you divorced or singles - man, stocking 400, 500, 600, and an incoming 800 + a D4 and D800 body, and I assume also stocking the holy trinity. I hope you are well insured.

What a fantastic setup to own, but I'm not sure I would even dare to leave home, I don't own half of what you have got and still I'm worried when I leave the house - insured or not, no one want to loose this kind of stock.

Anyway, I have a MD12 for my D800s, the built quality is better than the copy grips and it fits tighter and when fitted it doesn't feel as much like it's an add-on as the copies does. The thing is, I just don't use it any more, I tend to just carry one or two extra batteries in my pocket or bag, and usually I never need to replace the battery during a whole day of shooting, well of course, if I'm using my 500 with VR on for shooting trackdays it drains much faster, but I have basically stop VR anyway.
I have switched off the auto preview, in fact I did that many years ago and that preserves quite some energy.

Congratulations on the purchase, remember to be patient and it will reward you big time.

Keep us posted on you progress
