For those with Dxxx type cameras with a grip (as I don't know if anyone has gotten the D800 yet?)... why?
I ask because I have never held a Dxxx camera with a grip (nor a Dx camera without, which I gather is similar). But I've seen so many posts lamenting the lack of D800 grips available so far and/or their price.
I realize they provide more shots without battery change, I realize they provide faster speed (in crop mode only on the D800 though I think), and I realize they provide a different feel to the camera.
But what is the thing(s) that make a difference to you. For me the first two don't matter, and I have no clue about the last until I can put one in my hand.
Is it the feel? Or do you need the other features?
What is it that makes it worth the rather large price? Am I missing something? (Literal not rhetorical question).
