k-5ii battery grip

I would really like one but can't afford it. Are any off the off brand ones any good? Which off brand grip would be better than the rest? Do they still look and feel like the real thing?

There are two makers (and many relables) for the non-Pentax D-BG4 for the K-5 series cameras. I have had both the Pentax and one of the non-Pentax models and other than the fact that none of the non-Pentax ones are weather sealed they are very similar. The non-Pentax ones are well worth, in my opinion, the $50 or so they cost.

If I were you I'd try to save some money first and then go for the original Pentax battery grip.

But that's just my personal opinion.

Heartfelt greetings to Phoenix, AZ!
