    Hope so! Pray that the usage level given by the seller is truth, if not can see my money fly away :/

    D700 also can check battery life. just attach the grip, mount the battery usign BL-3, and look under the battery menu.

    It is a good deal. The charger (if it is the dual charger) already cost over 200 new. Each battery cost 160+ new, MBD10 cost 330 new, BL-3 cost around 50 new.

    Just grab.

    Given the seller is selling at $350 with 2 En-EL4s, and not 4as, chances of it being a MH22 is very low, MH21 more likely. But if it really is MH22, the TS is in super luck.

    I won't mind exchanging my MH21 with his MH22 + top up

    Hmm I think it will be the MH21 cos he got mentioned about the original price of that, which was around the price of the MH21

    oh... EN-EL4... not 4a... sorry I did not see properly. And with the MH-21 instead of 22, you have to think twice now. 4a have much larger capacity. EL4 will not get you the rated 4k shots. more like slightly less than 3.

    Don't really feel much difference on a 4 vs 4a. I hardly expend a 4 during a whole day or trip. 4K is already very excessive your flash cards would have dried up before your battery does

    Yea, but think EN-EL4 is still considered quite good since it can last similarly to 3 EN-EL3.

    Around 2 and a half. I can squeeze around 1.2k shots on a EL3e.

    Weddings/Events for myself, I hardly fill up a 32GB on the D2X, but with the D4 Hais...

    Anyway, the En-EL4 and EL3s are all good batteries shooting/chimping style differs to each, so 4k is an estimation.
