Cosmetically, this thing definitely shows signs of use. I'd probably rate it a 6 or 7 out of 10. You can't really tell from the pics, but there are small scratches throughout the body. Otherwise this thing functions exactly as it should. I bought it in a package with my 40D and I didn't really end up using it much at all, so minus whale get rid of it. I'll throw in an authentic canon bp-511 battery as well. The grip comes with the AA battery tray as well but you probably won't ever need to use it. No box or manual, just what you see in the pics.
