Anyone have an aftermarket bg-e16 grip yet? Can't find them on B&H or Adorama but found a Meike on Ebay.

Not having a grip is about to drive me nuts since it is more comfortable to shooting wildlife in portrait mode with it.

I had a Meike on my 60D and thought it was ok. I just got a Canon for my 6D and it is much higher quality. Better quality plastic and the locking wheel is more secure.

I have an aftermarket on my 60D for about a year now and i have had no issues whatsoever although i have never used a Genuine Canon grip, i would imagine it would be chalk and cheese in terms of quality.

I think Neewer, Meike and several others are all the same just with different packaging.

Thread wasn't really about how aftermarket grips were since I know that. Was just wondering if anyone had used one for the 7d mark ii yet.

My 6d has an aftermarket that has been doing good despite having some bad reviews on amazon.

I am interested as well. There appear to be two different types of grips for the 7D2 - with and without the joystick. Since the difference in price is about $20, it seems that the one with the joystick (and associated lever) would be a better deal.

Considering there's only about $100 difference between the (discounted) prices, I'm about to do the same, I think. With the 5D3 there was a substantially greater price difference at the time I bought.
