Default D500 Battery Issues

Be advised if you buy a D500 get the newest Nikon batteries for it as any older batteries (marked ion 01) or 3rd party batteries will not work i the body. My camera supplier/shop was not aware of the issue until I had it and when he talked direct to Nikon the said yep its a Nikon camera and uses on Nikon batteries

Agreed... Only works with Nikon batteries

But I don't seem to have this problem:

My D800 batteries (marked Ion 01) work just fine they just show as 4 (i.e. old, as age) that's all

As soon as I got The brand new Nikon batteries the battery issue was resolved. What amazed me was both of the camera laces I have dealt with told me flat out Nikon neer tol them about this issue until the specifically asked and Nikon admitted we did to sell more Nkon branded gear

The good thing about owning Nikon batteries is that I got all my 'old' ones replaced:

My D800 and V1 use the same batteries so I got 4 of them exchanged to the new ones (Li-ion20) + free shipping!
