Nikon's MB-D200

I picked up the MB-D200 Vertical Battery Grip today from Amazon and I must admit I am not completely impressed.

Plastic construction is a disappointment. However, I understand the argument that an all-metal vertical grip is found on the D2x. So, for one that supports weather-seals and all-magnesium alloy frame, you've got to go all the way.

I am happy with the extra size of the camera and it really improves the ergonomics of the camera, especially with a heavy lens. I am curious to find out how well the D200 performs when powered by 2500mAh AA batteries.
