I'm afraid it's true... the grip is going for 380 British Pounds at Jessops in UK - that's about $600...

Yeah..... It's a battery grip.... It holds a battery, I don't care which kind... It does not even have wireless connectivity in it...
The grip, the larger capacity battery and the battery cover will cost $850 - you can buy a prime lens for this money - even 2 - obviously not f1.4, although the 50mm f1.4 and the 85mm f1.8 should fit into that amount.

It's still Nikon, last time I checked, not Leica and not Hasselblad.... 3rd party options will be sold for $100.
They won't sell any of these at this price point. Wow, they really are losing it....
