    Yes, Optekas are fine, as good as the Canons except without the badge. Do it now, like right now. Your XT(i) is useless without one.

    There was a thread regarding this not long ago. do a search for opteka. I dont think one person has had an issue with theirs. I know I didn't with mine.

    Mine just came in yesterday...Looks awesome on the camera, but now the camera wont' fit perfectly in the bag and stick up a bit with it on. I don't really want to take it off every time i put the camera in the bag.

    I think i might have to invest in a new bag pretty soon.

    Functionality wise it works great...I can really feel the camera in my hand now. The batteries charged up in like an hour and half. The shutter button on the grip doesn't have much feedback and you have to push it in further than you would the shutter button on the camera. Not a big deal..i'll just have to adjust myself.

    Considering the price, its a good deal and good grip. plus you can even use AA if your battery runs out. I think it takes like 4 or 6 AA.

    :o i edited it.

    the camera is now taller and too big for the bag if i have the grip on. But i can still manage to close the zip...so its not that bad...just not as snug as i'd like it to be.
