Ben's Review of Canon BG-E20 Battery Grip

"The BG-E20 (5D4 grip) is very similar in design to the BG-E11 (5DIII body grip) - ergonomics are good, and it's a solid addition to the standard camera. There are two modifications to the design which I dislike. First is the on/off switch: In the 5D3, the on/off switch was a slider - you could flick it with a single finger as needed. With the BG-E20 (5D4), it's a rotary switch - but it's not something you can flick with a single finger, you have to use a thumb and finger to turn it. This means you need two hands to turn it on and off, one to hold you camera, the other to flick the switch. The second is the battery holder. It looks like they have pruned down the physical structure of the holder to save weight - but now there is less material, and the plastic also seems more flimsy. You can hear how fragile the plastic sounds if you drop it on a table. The 5D3 grip battery holder did not feel like it would break, even if you dropped it. The 5D4 sounds very fragile. I still recommend the grip - functionally it's still terrific and on the whole, the build quality is fine. However, with the couple of downsides I have mentioned, I'm deducting one star from my review."
