Nikon playing the accessories game again with the D4s.
Mar 19, 2014

Just noticed that there is a new battery for the D4s:

– its a bigger capacity battery, which is good.

– it uses the same power contacts as the EN-EL18, (you can use the D4 charger to charge it) which is good

– but you cannot use it in the D4 because they changed the mounting holder, the non-power contacts used to hold the battery in place has been changed – which is bad.

I am not sure if the new mounting plate can be used on the D4.

I never understood why people believed Nikon’s explanation of Japanese legislation forcing them to change the battery from the D2/D3 generation to the D4 one, because the power contact point looks exactly the same, all they changed was the side that the power contact points were on. Now they are changing the non-power contact points, forcing people to buy and manage another accessory.
