When holding the MB-D10 vertically, do you find the attachment wheel hits your finger? It does with the D200; I'm wondering if Nikon has moved the positioning at all on the newer grip. Also on the D200/grip: when held in horizontal format, there is a ridge between the body and grip that doesn't feel smooth. But this isn't as annoying as the vertical grip attachment wheel.
The wheel on the D700/MB-D10 and the D200/MB-D200 falls in exactly the same place. When holding the cameras in vertical position my little finger rests on the wheel. In horizontal position I don't feel the ridge you describe. It feels smooth to me.

I resemble that remark.
Also, since I focus with the AF-ON buttion it appears that I grip my MB-D10 a bit higher than you do as shown in your photo (since my thumb has to contact the AF-On button). When gripped so that I can focus I am unable to reach the wheel with any of my fingers.

I kind of prefer having my fingers somewhat spread out rather than all cramped together.
Also, I can reposition my grip so it's shallower. But that doesn't seem like a good idea.
I've always had a thing for good ergonomics. These vertical grips don't seem to be. Why does the wheel have to be so big? On the N90s grip for example, it was much smaller and not an issue.
