Re: No joy with genuine Canon battery!

A very good friend of mine bought a 6D. Works fine with the LP-E6 supplied with the camera. Bought a genuine Canon battery as a back up and it doesn't work. Doesn't show charge in display. It is genuine but from early 2012 (obviously been on the dealers shelf a while). Can anyone throw any light on that one? Is there an updated version of the LP-E6 for the 6D? I personally have 4 genuine Canon LP-E6 for my 5D2 and 2 3rd party batteries that work great. Quite fancied a 6D but if they're playing silly buggers with batteries I think I'll pass, my investment in 4 genuine Canon's is enough!

My brother borrowed one of my 4-year old LP-E6s for his new 6D over the holidays without any problems. Something else is at play here (counterfeit?).
