Re: Battery life...

First set through battery on first charge=718 lossless compressed NEFs with 18% left on the battery. I was setting up the camera and testing lenses, so a mix of LCD intensive menu stuff with rounds of shooting on different focus points, focal lengths, etc with AF and Live view and moderate chimping. Mostly AFS lenses and some manual. Also shot two videos on that charge for a total of about 3 minutes. SanDisk Extreme III 30mbs CF cards while I'm waiting on my new, higher capacity cards.

Battery life seems excellent to me (and I'm coming from the D3X where you can get 1500 shots on a charge).
