Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-> it will fit on a d300 -> vertical grip functionality -> IR remote control
Cons:
oke, here we go: -> NO WAY that 8 AA will work -> the thread was bent when i received it
Other:
on the box it is statet that 6 AA will fit, the descriopion here says 8 AA fact is: my tray looks exactly the same than on the 3. picture, left row. now, please explain how 8 AA will work there... they might fit, but well, useless
Bottomline:
if you need the vertical release button: get it if you want to use more then one lion: get it if you want to use AA's: don't get it ! my opinion: this product is FAIL and too expensive. it's virtualy useless
