Question

I'll ask a 3rd time. When will yo begin to ship this to retailers in the US? No one I have contacted has received this item. Not Amazon, B&H, Adorama

I can not use the grip for my D800 with the larger battery until I receive the BL-5.

Question

Does the BL-5 / EN-EL18 combo work on D600?

I have a Nikon D600, and am looking to get the MB-D14. I see that the BL-5 is an additional accessory for the MD-D14 and can increase the frame rate in the D800 due to higher wattage/voltage. Will this also work for the D600?

Yes, the BL-5 battery chamber cover can be used to adapt either the EN-EL18 or EN-EL18a for use in the MB-12 battery grip on the D800.
