I don't know if this has been posted or not, but Amazon has the Targus TG-BGXTI Battery Grip for the XT and the XTI for cheap right now. I ordered one this morning and using the promo code below it is being shipped to my door for $24.32. Couldn't pass it up for the price.

Promo Code: TARGUSO9

There is also one available for the Nikon D40/D40x/D60 for a few dollars more. Use the same promo code.

Wow, thanks for posting this. I really don't like grips but on the small Rebel bodies I find them necessary to balance heavier lenses. I have some Targus flashes and they work well. Order placed! :)

Doesn't the same grip work on the XS/XSi/T1? I was looking around last night for the one that fits the XS, cheapest price I could find was $55 delivered.

Yeah, that's what I was pointing out. The cheapest BG-5E clone I could find was twice the price for this grip for the XT/XTi.

Got the grip in today. It looks EXACTLY like the Opteka grip I already have on my XTi.

Mine hasn't shipped yet. Amazon can be slow with their free shipping option.
