Hello all, I have a battery grip on my D7000 which I love except for the quality of the plastic and the design of the geared mount screw. Is there a best quality of the different brands out there? I am wondering if the actual Nikon grip is of better quality and is worth the money, I have a cheap copy i believe it is a zekios but am wondering if anyone else has had problems with it coming apart. I realize that I usually have a heavy lens on my camera, either a 28-300 or a 150-500 so when on a tripod with the 28-300 it is a strain on the grip, I also use a rapid strap which connects to the tripod mount. I just had to super glue the grip back together because all of the little screw bosses inside have broken off.

Any suggestions are welcome
