I've always had an attached battery grip when available on my cameras (N80/MB-16; F100/MB-15; D700/MBD-700) along with RRS or Kirk L-brackets.

Lately, I've found that I don't want to be carrying all that extra weight and while I like the extra battery, the vertical controls (and the protection afforded by the L-bracket), I think I may take it off.

I've never really shot enough to run down a battery, but I always keep a spare, and carrying one in a pocket makes a lot of sense.

I know this is a personal preference thing. I can always add it back on. Anyone else who used to use the vertical grip take it off? How did you like it. I'm going to try it out for a while.
