D500 Battery drain disappointing

Hi,

I know this has been talked about a lot but after recently changing from a d7200 to the D500 the way the D500 goes through a battery is very disappointing, on a day shooting sand racing on Sunday i had to change the battery halfway through the day.  Never though i would be changing the battery as quickly as i do with my Fuji Mirrorless.

Battery worry was never a issue with my previous Nikons, D300/D3/D7200, they would rarely get down to 50% on a full days shoot.  Love the camera will just have to get more batteries i suppose.

Cheers,  Kev.
