NEX 6/7 and battery life
Sep 29, 2012

Hello,
I'm a Nikon user (D90, and P7100).
The NEX 6 seems to have all I want in a small package (with the 16-50 zoom).

Except battery life. I've read somewhere that battery life is about 360 shots when using the LCD, and much less when using the EVF (don't remember how many shots with the EVF).
That's bothering for me. I use the VF for all my photos.

I'm used to shoot more than 800 pictures with the D90, and about 450 with the P7100 (I almost never use the onboard flash).

So, my question is for the Nex 7 users who shoot using the EVF, because it has the same EVF as the NEX6.

How many pictures can you take before recharging the battery, when using the EVF only?
I suppose battery life should be the same on both cameras.
Thanks for your answers.
