The BG-D800M Looks great and has a professional feel to it, the finish is almost identical to the camera grip, mounts snug to the camera body. Only major downside is the shutter button feels flimsy and no were near the quality of the original shutter button, it requires a lot more effort to press and shoot and sometimes doesn't respond . The navigation toggle switch is over sensitive and always overshoots the target or the intended focus point, I find myself not using it at all. The two function dials seem to work fine. The BG-D800M works well for what you pay, although more effort should have been put into the shutter button as this is an important function for vertical shots. If your a casual photographer Im sure you will be fine with this Phottix Grip, if your a serious shooter then I suppose you already have the original Nikon grip and probably not reading this review.
