Yep. Batteries and charger is exactly the same on mine.
Nice since we are reamed $100+ for them down here. ($40 in the US)
Having a spare charger is handy too. One at the desk and one in the travel backpack.
Great advice Steve ... cuz I sell a lot of batteries/chargers to folks visiting Vancouver (BC) cuz, on more than a few occasions, people come to the realisation that whilst their battery may last a few weeks at home, on holiday it, generally, doesn't or the charger is, like the car/neighbours,etc ...., waiting at home for them
Yes, last time I was in Vancouver (May 2005 ?) I had a Nikon 5700 bridge camera and only 2 batteries. Man that thing went through batteries fast, even with the 1.5" back LCD screen off.
I remember "detouring" via the hotel to charge batteries.
Maybe I should have detoured via your store to pick up a spare battery or 2 (EN-EL1 ?)
Anyway, no problems now I have a K-5IIs (K-7 backup) and 4 batteries.
Just that I have no money for holiday travelling.
