mk3 Battery grip

Anyone know who's shipping the mk3 battery grips now? B&H has them listd for pre-order. Also, I've been tempted to try to fit the Mk2's battery grip onto the mk3 but the last thing I need to do is damage my new mk3! Anyone else tried this or know of alternatives to the rather expensive new grip?

TIA
Harry

Re: mk3 Battery grip

Good thing you did, Harry -- the Mk. II grip will not interface properly with the Mk. III body.

Notice the little plastic piece that sticks out on the MII grip and its slight change on the MIII grip, all the while pressing down a tiny button on the bottom of the camera? You didn't hear from me that it works. As for stock of the BG-E11's, you can find a few for $450US due to demand, but otherwise some are on their way to the states, expected within the next 1-2 weeks if it stays on track.

Re: mk3 Battery grip

So after weeks waiting on a backordered grip I googled in stock grip sources and found 5 grips available to ship immediately......why didn't I do this three weeks ago!!

My grip is being delivered today!

Bottom line - don't wait on the backordered grip (last estimate it'd be mid July before B&H whould ship any.....argh.

Re: mk3 Battery grip

Got mine from BH a week ago. I think they are shipping in order of payment.

Finally my 5D feels like a camera again!
