I went out for the weekend with just the V3 for some "snap-shooting", using just the new 10-30 and 30-100. With still 1 bar showing on the battery, I have 644 images taken. Given that the spec says 310 per CIPA, I am not at all unhappy. A fair number of these were 20fps, trying to get waving American flags in good position.

Just wondering what others are seeing as far as the battery goes?

Thanks,

On an outing I got 1498 photos and some of the time I was using f-mount lens where the VR runs all the time. I was shooting burst mode all the time. When you use the FT-1 adapter the VR runs all the time eating up the battery. I try to keep VR off unless the action is hot and I need the VR.

Ditto. At 20fps I've yet to run out of battery shooting sports. Although I once came close to running the battery down after covering both games of a baseball doubleheader. All things considered, battery life is pretty good on the V3.
