Getting ready to shot my grandsons basketball tournament Saturday I decided to get a Battery Grip--bought a XIT for the D7100 on Amazon for around $70. It works fine but feels cheap and does not match the black color of the camera. After I get though this weekend I'm going to pay the exorbinate price for a Nikon.

The Nikon is way over priced, but I guess you get what you pay for.

I also bought the new Tamron 70-200 f2.8 VC lens a few weeks ago and used it in another basketball tournament--very satisfied. Lens is well built, sharp and slightly smaller than the Nikon (also cheasper)
