Can anyone tell me if my old vertical grip for my MkI Canon EOS 7D is useable on a new Canon EOS 7D Mkii ... it's just another thing to update on if I decide to change, so may not bother if that has to be upgraded too !

Thanks in advance.

No, it's not. The 7D Mk II grip will cost about $200 for a genuine Canon version.

7D Grip: BG-E7
7D Mk II Grip: BG-E16

Thanks ... thought that would be the answer ... but worth asking ... it's about £169 in UK plus about £1k for the body of the 7D Mkii so unsure it's worth the cost to upgrade really ... tough one.

If you need good autofocus and low noise, the 7D mk II is better in every way than its predecessor. And it's a power hog thanks to the extra features, so the grip is a must-have for my all-day shoots.

I bought the grip, and the 7D Mark II. I've read about it being power hungry so I figured I'd buy the grip too, but I doubt having to change batteries would be a big deal to most people.
