Default Grip for Alpha 850 vs Alpha 900

Greetings all. I am about to purchase either the Alpha 850 or hte Alpha 900. The only thing separating the two is the presence of the battery grip. I know the Alpha 900 has one, the 850 is not available. My question is if the 850 can use the 900Battery grip.

According to Dave Etchells' review of the Sony A850 at Imaging-Resource.com , the Sony VG-C90AM Vertical Grip fits both the A900 and A850 (see the text under the "tricked out" photo of the A900, where Dave notes that "The same grip fits the A850 as well", in addition to more text about this grip in the review). So, I suspect that Sony just hasn't updated the description for the grip to include the A850 yet (and/or wants to market a similar grip under more than one part number).
