    anyone know a cogent reason for using this or the en-el4a battery in the MB-D10 grip versus rechargable AAA's? Seems like both will up the fps to 8 on the D300

    longer life, a touch lighter, compatibility with other full body cameras like the D3, D2xs, D2H etc.

    Less hassle

    Lot's more cost though.

    If you only have the D300 I say stick with the AA lithium recharge models.

    Cheers,

    Kurt, here's what I found, but FWIW I have no personal experience with the MB-D10. hope this helps!

    'With the included MS-D10 AA battery holder, users can power the camera with 8 AA batteries. Or you can use the Nikon EN-EL4 or EN-EL4A battery (sold separately) combined with the optional BL-3 Battery Chamber Cover to obtain a higher frame advance rate (8 Frames per second in the D300) than the EN-EL3e battery can provide.

    Thanks for the info, I think I will stick with AA's

    Thanks I'm excited. I do weddings and have been putting off buying a backup body. But I really need one so my D200 is that now.

    excellent info thanks. Wonder how the en-el4a differs from the non 'A' model.
