i fell, hard, on the fly... banged my camera so hard that the 2 batteries flew out - it does not close well and have a big crack on the grip. still wirks and my camera looks and works like ever. my other elbow and lefte leg however not so well. i have to do abkt 15 km per day until sunday - not fun but atleast the gear works. just a hint to people, askng about why a grip can be good... no photos until monday atleast too much work and a leg that hurts as hell!
