    Red face Is that all there is? Yeah, for now.

    The two grips are very compatible. I feared it might be a cheap knock-off, but somebody actually did their homework, this time. I mean, it may not compete with the upcoming vertical grips SONY is about to release for the A10 and A200, but on the A100 ... it does the job.

    At this wide angle, you can kind of see how everything is tending to pull to the upper right.


    And you can be quite sure, in my own de-fence (pun intended), that the fence is quite
    vertical.
