Grips are great.....you will enjoy it.......I did a survey and 85% of the people I talked to use them. So without a doubt a majority of photographers use them.

I don't own one, and currently don't plan to own one.

I can see only one real reason worth having it for. If whatever type of photography you do requires you do live in portate mode, then it's worth it to shoot while holding the camera in a traditional way.

I don't, and until I do, I can't see a reason for owning one.

i like battery grips. my hands are a bit big so without the grip my pinky doesnt have enough room. i too like the extra weight. dont really need the two batteries, but its nice to have and i dont have to charge as often. or if i forget my charger i should be fine for a while
sometimes i dont like the extra attention i get with it. its more noticeable like this. but the camera just feels better with it on and my fingers have a better, more comfortable grip. but i like to switch off and go without it

I borrowed a gripped 7D from a friend when I was considering buying my own, and decided they were not for me. It was convenient for portrait mode, but I didn't like the extra bulk when carrying it around. Glad I got a chance to try it out, though.
