I picked up a third party grip for my D700.
Seems well built, but all plastic of course. Not sure if there is extra reinforcing around the tripod mount hole
I use a Black Rapid strap. My question is -
Would you trust the third party grip tripod mount hole with Black Rapid ring to hold the weight of D700 + 80-200/2.8 while swinging in the breeze?
Anyone had/heard of any failures?
