A must buy companion to the Leica SL2

I pre purchased this grip as soon as it was announced and have used it extensively with my SL2 and consider it a must buy for all portrait shots. It is much lighter than it looks and balances beautifully with all Leica L glass. Solidly built and over engineered in typical Leica fashion ( down to the built in spaces to store both the camera and grip pin rubber protectors). It also provides for more battery life useful when out in the field but if concerned about the weight, can also be used without a battery to shave weight off the rig.

I was anxious about this purchase after reading several reviews and blog comments where reviewers said the grip is all plastic and did not fit well and wobbled or moved.The one I just received (quickly) from B & H is mostly metal, with great fit and finish.The grip is nicely molded to perfectly accept the base of the camera.Rock solid with absolutely no movement. It is a great help with vertical and horizontal shots. It would appear that Leica has responded to initial concerns and designed another great, professional grade accessory.

High Quality

Alleviates the problem where the SL2 runs out of battery power (at 75% full) for continuous high/medium speed bursts. Note: Does not resolve the problem - Leica needs to fix this. Very well made and does its job. Another note: keep checking to make sure it remains tight against the SL2 body. Also very expensive.

Nice, but not what I expected from Leica at this price.

I find this grip to be ergonomically perfect and much more comfortable for my big hands, regardless the added wait. The center of gravity with the Summilux and Summicrons SL lenses feels more appropriate.  However, the shutter button and the control dials feel much cheaper than the ones on the camera. The battery door makes a bit of noise and doesn't feel very solid when handled- the locking mechanism is really nice tho. The whole grip is made of some kind of plastic, which one would expect for weight saving. The look and finish is good, but a bit different from the camera's anodized aluminum. It's made in Portugal, in case you mind- (I don't.. but for the price, I was expecting German construction). I was also expecting a carrying pouch in the box.  I would still consider it expensive at half price. I'd say, buy it only if you need it.

Must Have - Especially for Using Non-Leica Lenses

First off, the build quality is as you'd expect from Leica. It's flawless in that respect. Where this thrives, however, is in allowing Panasonic and Sigma L-Mount Alliance lenses to be used without any power issues. Prior to purchasing this, my non-Leica lenses would cause my SL2 to only shoot in single or 3fps burst mode once the battery reaches 75% or less. After testing this grip, I was able to shoot 1,652 images in High speed burst with image stabilization active the entire time. Even after the second battery reached about 5-10%, high speed burst still worked perfectly. If I detached the grip and used the same battery at that level, the camera would not allow shooting at that speed.

Can the battery in the grip be charged without removing the grip from the body?
Asked by: Adam
The battery in the camera stays in and one battery in the grip get changes. It takes power from the grip battery first and then switches to the internal battery. At this point, you can replace the battery in the grip with a full one without turning off the camera and keep going
