Not what it used to be

Howard from Ashland, MA on 12/24/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not of the usual Nikon quality. D7000 versions were Magnesium alloy. This one appears to be plastic. Not the same build quality as in the past. Seems sad that for a product at this price, Nikon would use plastic to save a few dimes.

Pros: Gets the job done.

Cons: Poor build quality Plastic - not magnesium alloy, and feels so

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The battery pack work great. I have one on my d7000 as well

Pros: Works very well

Cons: I wish you could put another en-el15 battery in the pack. There would be room for it.
