    Pros:
    Same as Pentax D-BG4 battery grip works with lithium battery (sku.29921) and 6 AA-type batteries. All button functions are the same. I'm using it with sku.29921 lithium battery and this grip fits well on my Pentax K-5 body. It gives more power especially ne...

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

    Pros:
    Fits also K5! Quite good looking device. Build quilaty is more or less OK. Performing exactly what is required from additional battery grip. Gives you possibility to extend number of shoots without charging to infinity (if you will use AA batteries)) Can ...
    Cons:
    Build quality could be better. You can feel difference in buttons and dials operations comparing with ones on camera. Produced...

    Much cheaper than the original

    posted by ullberg on 08/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The grip is 1/6:th of the price of the original which makes it very cheap. The grip itself also looks and feels almost exactly like the original with the exception of the buttons.
    Cons:
    The quality of the buttons aren't the best. It feels like the On/Off wheel could get broken and fall of my grip very easily. Al...

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

    Pros:
    Looks match the original K7 finish. Adds extra grip/weight and professional feel to the Camera. Much better when using larger lenses 2x Cartridge Holders gives the ability to use either AA or D-LI90 Battery. Each container can also hold a spare SD Card. We...
    Cons:
    Buttons and dials are a little flimsy & loose compared to the original and exhibit some play and movement when touching the...

    Very good build grip

    posted by AntonH on 02/26/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very good build K-7 grip. Almost not noticable that it isn't the original grip. All the switches works very good and feels the same as the original switches on the camera itself. It has metal lock pins while a lot of the not original grips on the market ha...
    Cons:
    It lacks all the weather sealing, but well, it is 1/5 of the price of the original grip. So the times when it rains while you a...
