Thanks for your comment. On the B&H site, the silver limited edition body with the grip included is right now $2099 (with no sales or discounted noted), whereas I could get the black body for $1797 (there is a note that this is after instant savings of $200) and the grip for $147 (noted as instant savings of $100), for a total of $1944. So silver limited edition would cost $155 more, grip included, than if I got the black body and grip separately. I believe this is because of those special discounts on the black body and grip.

Thanks for your comments. Yes, of course only I can decide, but I'm just looking to learn of the experience of others who actually have and use the camera and grip. You are right, I should just get it and then I can always return it (or sell it if return is not possible) if I don't like it.
I have the grip but I never use it. (My hands are medium sized.) The grip makes the camera even heavier than it already is. Maybe fine in a studio but not when using the camera outdoors.
