I live in Paris and Nikon has a service centre here so I dropped it off with them. I was lucky to get about 500 shots per battery taking single frames ... but that was with a Nikon lens. If I used my Sigma 17-50 it would plummet to maybe 200 (I have read that this lens will get less shots per battery on a D500 but less than half seemed very odd). If I was shooting at 10 fps it would was higher but I never tested how many shots I could have got if I had kept going.

Thanks!  Enjoy your new D500 and please let us know if the battery issue is now fixed!
