    After 3 weeks, $300, and being fucked in the ass by USPS it finally arrived.
    :bowdown:
    That thing is awesome. Feels really solid, and the rubberized vertical grip feels great. Funny, how the grip feels much sturdier than the 350D itself. :rofl:
    I also have the E-1 handstrap for it., and a duet of two knock-off NB-2L $15 batteries from Sterlingtek.com.
    Once I get my Sigma 30mm f/1.4, it's be a gorgeous combo.

    Not everyone has the E-1 handstrap.
    Also, not everyone looks as fucking badass as I do.

    Also, aperture is too wide.
    I wanted to get the whole camera in focus, but I was too anxious to make the thread to fiddle with this shit.
    Besides, DoF is fucking hard to judge on 350D's mini-viewfinder.

    they need to make it so it eliminates that small gap between the camera and grip (right side of photo).

    believe me, his head and hands ruin any asthetics the camera has to start with.
