I don't see where they stated that on their website.

Yesterday it said, "Available today", May 7, 2012.
Today it says, " call for availability"
It would lead me to believe that they "expected" it but it didn't arrive?

This question is a matter of preference. For myself I can't live without a grip. It makes the camera more portional and feels better in my hand. But again this is just my opinion.

+1
It makes the camera much easier to hold. I have big hands.:D

Maybe the quantity they got was sucked up by back orders.

Word from CPS this morning is that they don't have a release date yet. (5/14)

Anybody have any updates on the grip? Have they been spotted in "the wild"...or it just reviewers who have gotten their hands on them.

I haven't used a camera without a grip in 8 years (5Dc and 1D3), and I'm not looking forward to lacking a grip at all. I guess it's the disadvantage of the 5D3 becoming available so quickly after the announcement.

Given RRS doesn't even have L-plates for the gripped version, I wonder if even they are struggling to obtain a grip.

Edit: oops...hadn't refreshed the page for an hour (too many 5D3 tabs open in excitement for tomorrow's delivery) and TampaPhoto had already posted an update. My apologies.

You guys might as well consider this knock off instead of waiting for Canon's version.

wonder what the fit and finish will be like.
Not nice to have large gaps and non functioning buttons.

Sometimes it's a false economy!

I have the 5D2 version, which have a battery magazine similar to the 60D version.
Fits perfectly to the camera body. The finish is all black plastic with rubber. Very lightweight & functional. Although the shutter button is very soft, doesn't have the half-stop click feel like the camera shutter button.

I'm absolutely willing to buy the 5D3 version.

It's pretty sad that clones aka knock off are out before the real one. It just takes money away from Canon. Oh well.
