Canon 5D Mark III users that have the Canon BG-E11 battery grip: Have you had any issues with the multi-controller (joystick)? When I use it with lens attached to the body it goes crazy in the middle of shoots. For example, when I hold the camera using the grip and move the dot around it will move 2-3 spots in the wrong direction. Without it connected to any lens, it is fine. Just wondered if anyone had this happen to them or not.

No problems with mine. Do the pins on the grip all look OK?

Mine has broken off!
Think it had to do with the bag while using a way too big lens (for the bag).
I don't miss the button very much so it doesn't hinder me.

Good luck.

No problems here.

I'm assuming your issue is with the controller stick on the grip and not the camera, correct? -? Any way you can test the grip on another 5diii?

Make sure all of the pins and contact points (in the camera) are clean. Also with the grip, make sure that the pins' springs are in good condition.
