Difference between GR-E1 & GR-E2 Grips

John Paloulian , May 11, 2007; 07:29 p.m.

Hello Folks, I've been checking the internet to see the differences between these Grips GR-E1 and GR-E2. I've seen posts like there are some minor differences, but nobody is actually saying or noting what are those differences. Any Help will be appreciated! By the way, I checked with Canon technical dept, and daah! They didn?t know what I was talking about. I should have known better. The reason I'm asking is that I have some of these brand new Grips for over 5 years now, and trying to sell it on ebay, but have to know the difference before posting it on there.

The GR-E1 grip was standard on the EOS-1, EOS-1N, and EOS-3. The GR-E2 grip was standard on the EOS-1V, and encloses the battery more fully. They are interchangeable.

Thank you very much for contributing this information. I wonder why Canon Parts is selling GR-E1 part #CG1-0502-000 for $57.00 and GR-E2 part #CG1-3760-000 for $30.00 which is almost half the price of the GR-E1. And per Canon and as well as per some users the GR-E2 is the Improved Grip. But I still don't understand and wonder if GR-E2 is more improved why Canon will sell it Half the price of GR-E1?
