Just got my 50dcamera and starting shopping for accessories. I was looking at the Canon battery grip and noticed they are quite expensive compared to off brand grips. (2 to 3 times more.:O)When it comes to battery grips, does that old saying apply? "You get what you pay for." There is several grips available for the 40d/50d that are right around the $100.00-$125.00 range that also includes batteries. I'm curious to know what you guys are using, if your using one. I did a search, but nothing came upwhen it comes to the batterygrips for the 40d/50d cameras. I found a thread that talked about the grips for the smaller Canon cameras. Any info you can provide would be great. I just don't want to get a ebay grip that falls aparta couple weeks after owning it. If getting the Canon grip is the way to go then that's what I'll get, but I would like to save some money getting a 3rd party battery grip so I may savetowards other accessories.
Thanks...

Have a look here, there is a user review in Amazon. You can form your own opinion. BTW I have the Rebel version of this grip and it's excellent.
