Any knock-off battery grip for D810 that allows EN-EL18 / EN-EL18a bat? As I see it, it is only reason to go with original NIKON on this one...
Any thoughts? Except that im a cheapskate

I have no experience with the D800 but I've read some message threads from people who have had problems with non-Nikon grips on various bodies. Others have said that they worked fine. I guess your mileage may vary depending on your camera body and the particular grip you buy. That said, my thinking has always been to consider the grip as an integral part of the body. And, for that reason, I'm inclined to go with the Nikon grip in all cases.
I realize that the cost is non-trivial (and getting worse with each new body) but I'd rather pay the penalty and not worry about the thing conking out on me in the field.
