I hope their is a vertical grip because I know many desire it. In my case though, I really have no interest (at this time at least) in it. I sole reason I would be getting the D200 is for a smaller form camera to carry in lieu of the D2 series at times.
Again, I do hope they have a vertical grip because I do know MANY desire it.
I have no doubt that there will be a vertical grip for a pro level Nikon DSLR. The images look real. I wonder if the grip will offer any functionality beyond dual batteries and vertical controls? A multifunction grip could certainly be possible, but the images suggest an emphasis on batteries, there's no view of a grip control panel. Still plenty of details to flesh out with the specs...
Assuming there actually is a grip, which there probably will be, it BETTER be better than the soft-squishy-loose mounting that the D100 grip offers. What a joke that was. Have to tighten it all the time.
But the D100 will be sold soon, along with it's annoying button layout.
That last picture on the kosoof site caught me eye. Is that a 70-200 and the body is holding it up?!?! That is a trick. My F5 won't do that. What do they have in that body?? The vertical grip must be made out of uranium or something
