Hi Folks,

I'm looking into getting a D7000 w/ MB-D11 grip (no third party grips, thanks). In reading the reviews of the MB-D11 on Amazon and B&H, I see sevaral that reference dissatisfaction with this pairing for a couple of issues:

The first and most frequent thing I've found is reference to what seems like about 1mm worth of play between the grip and the body...some folks seem to have resolved this by way of DIY solutions involving small o-rings placed around the metal stabilizing pin on the grip. Thoughts? Experiences?

The second and certainly less frequently reported issue is one person's reference to not being able to mirror the behavior of the AE-L/AF-L button on the camera to that on the grip. After reviewing the user's manual for the D7000, however, I think this might have been a result of one user not reading his manual thoroughly (as there seems to clearly be a custom menu setting that specifically forces the AE-L/AF-L button on the grip to always mimic the function of the same button on the body. Thoughts? Experiences?

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Ben
