Yes, the battery will need to be smaller, but the grip can hold more than one of them, so it makes up for that.
I don't beleive your comparing apples to apples there. However, im not very framiliar with Nikons lineup. Does the D700 support all the same features as the D3 and have the same AF and metering systems?

Yeah, a pound definitely is noticeable when you've been carrying around it your neck/shoulder for 15 miles on difficult terrain.

They are basically the same camera electronically, except Nikon removed a couple of features from the D700 so it wouldn't become superior to the D3.

I would figure you would bag it at SOME point during that trip. Still, I frequently take my entire bag on hikes that are ~10-12 miles in sand, and I've never found an additional pound to be an issue.

I typically keep it out because I tend to miss shots whenever I put the camera away.

You must not be into the same type of hikes that I am if you think a pound is negligible though.

We usually hike the Indiana or Warren (Michigan) Dunes, or Starved Rock Statre Park. Our big hike is at Mt. Baldy -- we all ride our bikes from home to the Dunes (80ish mile round trip) and hike for about 8-10 miles. This year I'm gonna try it on my singlespeed, I assume I will be quite tired by the time I get home.

We don't have a lot of, erm, elevation changes to speak of here, but hiking those dunes is intense. I probably won't bring all of my gear, but I'll definitely be planning on ~50lbs worth of pack.

Well, I guess that qualifies then. My preference is the 14000 foot peaks. It gets ridiculous those last 1000 feet or so when you can hardly keep your breath standing still.

Yeah, I bet I might take issue with that -- but I'm not really into... heights. They usually result in heavy consideration of changing my pants.

Haha, well when you're at the top, it really doesn't feel any different than a 10,000 foot peak. Except for the altitude. I don't even know how to explain how that feels.

I dunno, but the D3 grip houses like 1.5 cm of PCB that hangs out of the body and thats it. Everything else is just battery and there are almost no electronics in there. Also built in grips all suck huge dick. MB-D10 > everything, and I prefer the BG-E6 to the vert grip of the 1Ds (they're all the same anyway). They both have the problem of not having enough grip area and the 1D grip is super thin. But as I said, tech will probably trickle down and I'd love to buy a 5DII with new sensor and other related stuff. New Canon body design is too smooth though. I liked the angles at the top of the pentaprism on the 5DII, 1D/sIII, and 1DIV.

If I had the tiny hands of a 15-year-old asian boy, I would probably wish for a gripless camera as well. The horizontal grip on every non-pro body from either brand is too short for me.
