Sony a850 battery grip

Sony a850 28-75mm f/2.8 lens

I bought a battery grip for the a850 on ebay. Its not something I'll use a lot, so I got a 3rd. party one made in China. It cost £43:00. The official Sony one is £200 more. Battery grips are very expensive accessories, and some of them can cost 1/3 price of the camera. I've often used alternatives to the manufacturers own make and always found them fine. This one for the Sony is well made, and will come in handy from time to time. Incidentally, the camera looks a monster with it fitted, but its a lot lighter than it looks. We're not talking GF2 weight here, but for a fully kitted out DSLR plus fast zoom lens, this isn't that bad.

Some shots taken with it fitted. It is nice for the vertical shots, and I've always liked Sony's position of the vertical release shutter.
