I searched the thread about batteries and found that Lenmar, Delkin and Canon of course were/are the batteries to use because of fit. While the Lenmar/Delkin are cheaper what about the fit? Most of the posts about batteries was 2008 and before, has there been a clear winner regarding 3rd party batteries or is it better to just bite the bullet and get Canon? Thank you.

I bought 2 lenmars from amzon - and they are awesome! Hold a charge similar to what a 2 battery, battery grip on the 40D will (1000+ photos)
and the fit is perfect. for only 36$ Im thinking of getting another to replace the aging canon one that mine came with and have 2 Good batteries rather than 1 good and one OK.

Use the endcap of your old Canon battery for the Lenmar or Delkin batteries. The little flip/tab on 3rd party batteries don't stay up well.

Nice shot D. Same to you, ZZ. Interesting lens, will await more pics, to see how it delivers. ;)

I figure with Canon batteries, at least you have piece of mind that they seal the camera completely. I don't really know of any others that will, but, for the few extra that it costs, I'd take another Canon battery. ;) That's just me, though.

I Disagree - both of mine are VERY tight fits, and have no issues with the tab falling.
Also - its not like Canon would replace the camera if the battery gets wet and shorts out, just cause you used a canon battery.
the seal on the Lenmar looks Better (thicker rubber used, seals tighter when I twist the lock)

That's not true of the latest Delkin's. They switched "end-cap" suppliers, and eliminated the two step mambo for releasing the batteries. The flip tabs on both of my newer Delkin's stay up just fine.

The Delkins are 2300 mAh, and last way longer than the 1800 mAh Canon ones. Don't know about the capacity on the Lenmars. Can someone with a Lenmar tell us what it is?

That's good to know. The last 3rd batteries I had for the 1D MKII were Lenmar and Diamonds and the flap didn't stay up. Kodos to Delkin to make this minor but hella annoying improvement.

The Lenmar I have is listed as 1800mah, course it is HALF the price :)

Me too. ;)

I recently bought a Canon battery for mine and it's been great! Out for a couple hours in below-freezing temps and it held up for the whole shoot without having to swap it out due to the cold. When I got mine from B&H, I had to wait several weeks for them to get stock as they were sold out. This was good in that I knew I got a super fresh one and the peace of mind knowing I could depend on it...that's worth the extra cost to me.

Cheers!

Nice to see this thread is propagating and gathering new members!!

Just noticed that I reached 1000 posts! Took me over 4 years to do it, but I'm now a Senior Member. Lol, what a trip. Hopefully I'll have some post-1000 celebratory 1DsII images soon, been too busy to shoot lately but I might make an extra effort to get out in order to mark the occasion.

Cheers all!!

I got my ZE 2/35 last week. It's built like a tank and focuses so smoothly. My MF skills will be tested chasing our new puppy around. My wife with our Britanny Spaniel/Black Lab mix named Libby. Didn't quite nail the focus on the eyes but this was f/2, 1/20 sec. handheld, ISO 800.

Thanks everyone for the battery suggestions. My one concern is the fit of 3rd party batteries. As someone suggested, paying the extra for a Canon battery seems like cheap insurance especially for me as I don't shoot a lot of images. At the moment I have 2 Canon batteries but may add a third after I see how these batteries take a charge. Thanks again.

One good battery saving tip is to turn Review off. That way the last image doesn't flash up on the screen after every shutter sequence. The screen is a huge battery draw and you'll get many more shots if you use it less.

What issues are you having in post?

Cheers!
