Shouldn't the camera "run" equally as fast with one battery vs. two batteries? These things are digital devices after all and not electric motors.

Also, if the D700 is internally like the D3, shouldn't it be able to reach 9fps like the D3?

Is this Nikon's way of making people buy more stuff to get extra performance?

Intel did something similar: their higher price CPU and lower price ones are the same. Only the lower price ones have part of the circuit disabled.
