Hi, All --

This may seem like a dumb question, but I have noticed that with the MB-D11 grip installed on the D7000, the camera does not sit level when I set the camera down with anything heavier than the 35mm 1.8 lens attached. This means the camera tips forward and the lens (or hood)rests on the tabletop or whatever surface the camera is sitting on.

What is the best way to set the camera down with the grip attached? I have seen people put the camera lens down, with the body up in the air, but that seems precarious. Advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!
