    Looking at the D700, the only weak point I see is the water tightness of the interface between the D700 and the MB-D10. I wish someone would come out with a thin gasket that would self stick to the MB-D10 and provide complete water tightness to the electrical contact area. It doesn't need to be very thick, maybe a mm or so that would conpresss a little when attching the MB-d10 and providing a seal between the two units.

    that continues to be exactly the problem between the D200 and its grip

    On the D300 the 15 pin connector has a rubber seal. The D700 probably has one as well. The other connector has a rubber seal on the MB-D10 side.

    I didn't see the one on the 15 pin connector. Now that you mentioned it, I did take a better look and sure enough, there is one there too. We'll I guess we can scratch that idea. Thanks for the heads up; These old eyes just aren't what they used to be.
