For me? Terrible But I expected that.

For me, the grip is tiny. The camera disappears in my hand. Better than the D7000, but only just.

Meh, don't notice it much. The one on the battery grips is tiny. The one on the cameras is ok to me.

None of these has a pro body layout. They physically cannot. You know this going in, and you know you are going to hate it. You live with it because Nikon refuses to put these great sensors in any pro cameras.
