Why would it be delayed? It cant be that
complicated internally.... Haha... Firmware updates for a grip alone
I know right? Maybe it's another rubber grippy glue problem like the 60D
LOL @ 1k for a grip. I'd rather not spend that much on a grip along.
Hey hey hey, Don't shoot the messenger.

Between this, the light leak glitch, that DPP didn't seem to be ready for the new model, I'm beginning to think Canon rushed the 5DIII out the door. Maybe due to what the competition was doing.
It's odd that the grip wasn't immediately available, alongside the camera. I can't recall that ever happening before with any previous model intro... at least not more than a week or so. LP-E6 were a bit hard to find when the 5DII first came out, but that was corrected quickly.
I don't think they rushed the 5D3 out the door. The light leak issue is very minor, and the consensus is that it's basically a non issue to everyone except astro photographers. As for the grippy being delayed, I'm thinking it's another glue problem.
