Nikon MB-12 for D800 in stock


While the bodies are taking time to show up in quantity, UK retailer WEX (formerly Warehouse Express) has the MB-12 battery grip for D800/D800E in stock at £379.00. Please click here to buy. Although the D800 body is fine for smaller, shorter focal lengths, I consider this an essential purchase for improved handling when using longer lenses - anything from 105mm and up.

  1. A Bit over priced..The after market should be coming up with something more reasonable.

  2. Well, gear is expensive in the UK if you have to pay VAT, but I wouldn't want to spend £2,500 /2,800 on a D800/800E to put some aftermarket pack on the bottom. Then there's the question of keeping it up-to-date with firmware, should Nikon change anything with the D800. In all I don't think it's worth the risk, and certainly not if your job depends on it. Still, I appreciate your comment.

  3. It is still overpriced as is the battery EN EL 15. When I bought my D7000 the battery cost US $49.95. Now it is $69.00, Same Battery ?Hmmm.
