Well, at least the 28mm 1.8G on the D800 is sharp...

I almost forgot to mention this for those of you who don't mind third party accessories, the EN-EL15 has finally been cracked and I have one on the way. If it's anything like the Canon LP-E6 it will work perfectly but not yield quite as many shots per charge.

Where'd you get it, and for how much? I've got two of the Nikon brand ones, but wouldn't be opposed to a third for emergencies.

They're already on eBay and you can also buy one at B&H if you're concerned about quality. I have an eBay special on the way for $20 but I do have the equipment to test them before putting in the camera. Here's the B&H battery:

I'd rather spend a few extra bucks and get En-EL15 than some third party. But it's weird how I refuse to buy a $390 battery grip. WAY overpriced.

Just bought my pixel grip for $79. Works like oem, and feels good in the hand.

They have enough of my money already. As long as the batteries are manufactured to physical specs there is nothing wrong with them and if there was an issue B&H and other reputable dealers wouldn't sell them. In the end it's up to the individual and I do own four Nikon EN-EL15s but extras never hurt especially for eight day (or more) power outages.

I will risk on buying/trying some third party (I like zeikos, JUST got available at BH) simply because I ordered an RRS L plate for body+grip. If it won't work, oh well, I'll end up buying MB-D12

I'm sure glad I don't need a grip. That grip is crazy.

Nothing wrong with that, it's your money.

Personally i've seen too many cheap knockoff batteries explode into fire and such to ever bother with it...

If a Canon or Nikon genuine battery bursts into flames in your camera, i guarantee you Canon or Nikon will make it right...

You have seen these stories where? If they're from people posting I've seen some tall tales. The biggest problem with some of the knockoffs is that they are not quite the same physical size and don't fit right or make proper contact to power up the body. It is a good idea to know your seller.

We had a long thread here when the Canon LP-E6 was finally cracked and I did not see one report of an 'exploding battery'.

Not -specifically- Canon or Nikon batteries, just in general, cheap knockoffs CAN have QC problems and these problems DO result in the potential for fire... I HAVE seen it happen, and seen the end results of it...

Just saying why personally i wouldnt do it.. lol
