can you shoot faster than 5fps with the grip? I thought there was that advantage in addition to the extra power and extra shutter release, or can it store the info faster??? Or am I dreaming?

With a heavy lens, adding the battery grip makes the camera balance better in my hand.

Just got back from the Canon Authorised Service Centre, they've added a small add on to the battery grip so that it fits better. Apparently, the grip can become loose and cause the camera to switch off for no apparent reason! So, the added a small washer type fitting around the stem of the attachment that fits inside the camera bay of the camera. If I can get a picture of it, I'll post it here!

Worth speaking to an Authorised Service Centre!

Here's another neat trick that I find helpful. Just use some teflon tape, wrap it around the srew, cut off the excess and attach. Will work fine.
