Well I went with the 40FS I was a little concerned about the cycling for the new batteries as the camera is for my wife and the hassle that might be caused with only 20 shot or so then charge and so on until the batteries are fully cycled. Well over 50 pictures later and lots of flash use and a ton of standby time (shot prep and running through settings on the new camera learning them) and the first charge is still holding strong a week and half later.

I popped the new 1gb Ultra II card in for my wife so now she can go shot crazy

I agree, very happy with mine as well. It purportedly "conditions" the batteries as it charges them, eliminating the need for conditioning the cells. Time will tell if this is the case.
