Ive been researching info on the only k100d grip on the market. Do you guys think i should get it? The reviews make it seem ok but i just wanted to hear what ya'll think?

Why would you want one? Do you take more than 500 shots at a time?

Do you want to carry more weight?

The specs don't match with the text. Does it take 6 AA's or 12?

I'd put the money towards a new lens...

Been there . . .

Ronald, I asked this question about a week ago and was quickly dissuaded by the following discussion:

I forget whom it was, but there was someone on this board whom made their own.

It was at least as nice as that one. Personally I feel that it was nicer.

I'd never buy one that didn't have something to cover up the wires and door for the remote shutter cable, and batteries.

Don't know about you but I have pretty big hands and the k10d grip has been a welcome addition for me.. Much more comfortable to hold the camera. Even more so with larger lenses, but even with smaller ones..
