Get a battery grip or not?

Right now I use my D700 without a battery grip. It works well most of the time, but I also do shoot a lot of pictures in portrait which I feel the battery grip would be quite good to have.

The issue is, that is pretty much the only reason I can think of where I would need it, and the reason I didn't buy one in the first place.

Now are there advantages to the battery grip other than that? Would it give the camera better balance?

I know of the burst shot advantage, but for now 5FPS is fine. I also already own 2 batteries and I don't mind swapping them out as needed. I can only see that grip adding a lot more weight.

Please advise.
