Completely agree. I'm amazed by folks who buy a top of the line, expensive camera and then want to save a few bucks by putting a cheap grip on the camera. I've always thought that was being pennywise and pound foolish, but as the French say, "Chaque a son gout."
"Nothing can be recognized without light and shade. It is only through the eye, the window of the soul, that we can truly understand the complex workings of nature." - Leonardo da Vinci
