Battery for FZ40
 
I just got off the phone with Panasonic (800.833.9626). They do have the battery for the FZ40, however it is on backorder (approx. 3 wks). The cost is $59.95 + $10.95 for ground shipping :eek: Also the part # has changed it is now DMW-BMP9.

Just thought I'd give you guys a heads up.

so what's this all about? i heard that you cannot use aftermarker batteries(if there's any) for fz40? what about fz35 can i use aftermarket battery ?

When I had my FZ35 I was able to use an aftermarket battery (bought thru Amazon). I think it's the new cameras that have the batteries with a chip.

The FZ40 and FZ100 are "chipped" - meaning it uses only Panasonic batteries but the FZ35 can use after market batteries. It's not "chipped".

Amazon carries a good selection.
