The K-7 and K-5 share the same battery grip.

I got one ..ebay $54 delivered..genuine will set you back $240 to your I wish I had the genuine one...yes...will the knock off do..yes.....

its not bad..but the shutter release don't feel like the one on the body and the on/off switch is a bit sloppy...its not nasty cheep and does the job.... for me its the difference in the feel of the shutter release that puts me off..I have to push down harder to release the shutter

Bought my aftermarket one (same ones discussed ad nauseam here) about 8 months ago and has always worked just fine. No complaints from mine and when I need it, it performs the exact same way as my BG2 did.

Thanks guys, have ordered one from Deals Extreme, $55 USD delivered. Apparently they are a bit slow delivery wise, but as DWI have no K5 stock, there is no rush is there?
