I'm planning to add the 20D to my arsenal, and have been shopping around for prices on the BG-E2. Can't find it listed on any of the camera store websites that I generally check. Went to Canon USA (the Canon Canada site links back to it for more info, etc) and checked the 20D products page. Clicking on the BG-E2 Buy Now link under supplies and accessories, I got a page saying Please Try Again ...This Product Is Not Available.
I know from previous postings that Canon fessed up to problems with the grip and planned to offer repairs.
Has anyone actually heard they are pulling the grip entirely from the market?

cheers,
jim

Canon Canada is offering the bg-e2 repair, but I have not taken them up on it yet. They want you to mail your grip to them(your expense) and they will mail it back repaired.

Yeah...can't go wrong at CAD$279 for the grip, battery, and case. I've searched on eBay, and they have been selling for about CAD$220 plus shipping & tax just for the grip.
