Has anyone gotten their pre-order for this yet? Is this really worth getting since I am keeping my D500? I am seriously considering cancelling this order and getting a monitor for video. I pre-ordered on Aug 26th.

 I have read and hear that the nikon version does not mate up perfectly to the body. They might be making new molds to avoid a massive return frenzy..  I think I am going to cancel my order and get the refund..  I  want to buy some video stuff anyways ;-)

You might want to watch this video by Matt Granger.  He mentions the ill fit:
