A studio camera does not need an integrated grip. An architecture camera does not need an integrated grip. A landscape camera does not need an integrated grip. If you want a grip for those purposes, attach an optional one.
Canon already makes a camera with an integrated grip for sports, photojournalism, and some wedding photographers.
I shoot 80% of time in studio or achitecture, on tripod. I never do sports, photojournalism, wedding.
Anyway yes I largely prefer integrated grip. More solid, better handling, no play between grip/body (specially on tripod for vibrations !), square shaped with Lbracket keep same framing vertical/horizontal on a tripod, and I just hate shooting vertical with small bodie, even horizontally my little finger gets cramps.
I'm really sorry to not think exactly like you. Seems a lot of people fail to understand other people can have other need/wish/use of their tools, all respectfully.
If only Canon would make nice grip, perfectly fitting the body and without any play/vibrations between parts, it would be no problem for me. Now if high mp body get itself in a small body I won't yell everywhere, I will just use the tool that does the job for me.
