it does look purdy, but I think that I'll put my money elsewhere.

Kinda Rube Goldberg-ish, though, isn't it?

The K200D will hit the shelves in a couple of months TOPS, so why bother? This one seems a bit overdone, although to be fair, it's one of the prettiest vertical grips I've seen.

No thanks...

With shipping it totals $177.00.

Almost what my K100 is worth.

Mmm I'd prefer he previous version which, if my mermory serves me well, did provide power as well.

That being said: eastheticaly, it is much better job than previous version.

The previous Dicain grip did not have power but did have a built in remote trigger in the grip. The Ownuser grip that is still available has power and trigger.

Oouch my bad.
Vertical shutter is nice but that price and that bulk without even a power option makes it quite expensive IMO.

I am being happy with my Ansmann grip for the K100D. And I am not waiting for the Dicain grip. They are late for making an grip for the K100D (super). I think that with a few months that the K100D (super) will be not sold anymore. Maybe it will then also work on the K200D??

Way to expensive.. but it does look very puurdy! Id rather get a K200D with official grip that does so much more.. Nice try but the price kills it..

Thanks

No Thanks...One of the great things about the small K's is that they are small...
