firmware 2.0 fixed battery false depletion problem (NiMH)?

I had reported battery depletion problem (NiMH 2500 Energizer) previously and I just noticed with 2.0 firmware, I don't seem to have this problem any more.

Previously, after shotting in continuous mode for 3 pictures, camera will show depleted battery and shut down. Now I had taken 8 continous shots and even with apparently "pause" after 8th, camera still going without showing false battery depletion errors.

Coudl anybody also confirm this issue? This is pretty cool IMHO.

PS I just bought two cheap lenses on ebay (vivitar 28mm/2.8 and 135mm/2.8 both K mount). It'll be a few days before they come. Anybody happens to own them and care to comment on the quality? (paid less than $10 for both). Thanks.
