    Unlikely, but you can check the spec on the 3rd party grip again.
    D700 * 70-200 F/2.8 VRII * 24-120 F/4 * 50 F/1.4G * SB900

    nikon doesnt have an official batt grip for d5000 while for d300/d700 is the mb-d10. so even if it's 3rd party, highly unlikely that it's the same. even the size of the d5000 is different from d300/d700

    Most probably cannot, the size is totally different, I doubt the screw mount would be at the same position for both cameras.

    No. The size is different and the way the connection is made is also different.

    Query in the same topic:
    The 3rd party batt grip for D5000 looks more like MB-80, MB-d10 or MB-d11?

    None of those, since Nikon does not make battery grips for the D5000 anyway.

    But there are 3rd party grips for d5000 right? Is it like mb-80 which slots directly into the battery compartment or mb-d10&11 which doesn't?
