Sony needs to fix 3rd party battery charge reporting with a7M3 2.0 firmware
10

The anyoing 3rd party battery warning is one thing - what's even worse is that the camera has stopped properly reporting the charging level of 3rd party batteries after some time. Percentage is shown initally and then disappers to be replaced by a battery symbol indicating fully charged. Worked before the firmware update. Don't tell me it is to protect customers. Did anyone see a reference to this in the firmware release notes? A short note to the European Antitrust Office should be in order.

My 3rd party battery is a Baxxtar which hasn't given any issues before the firmware update.
