Are you refering to their alkaline or rechargable batt?
If alkaline, then not surprising, but if it is the rechargable, then something wrong....... (Assuming the batt is in good condition and properly charged)

use your Sanyo rechargeables NiMH. Alkaline batteries are not suitable for high drain devices like digital cameras, especially those that use only 2 batteries. I used to have a camera that could take less than 10 shots with alkalines!!!! That camera could take more than 80 shots with rechargeables NiMH.

I don't think so, it is sad but some just like to generalise with a single, one off experience with a certain model. I had seen quite a many CSer who are using both the 2100 and 3100, they are not complaining about it.
