    A spare? What about 5 or 6 spares? Very pricey! Nikon should have
    included the AA battery holder in the box with the camera. They should
    have also used a much faster lens, perhaps one that is f2.4 or f2.6 at
    max telephoto.
    At what price? If it would be priced at $20 it wouldn't be so bad, although
    it really sahould be included with the camera. I believe it is around $150
    though, which is crazy!

    No way. Perhaps if the AA battery case was included with the camera,
    and the lens was f2.8 or faster at max telephoto I might consider it.
    The Sony f717 looks more interesting, although I didlike its proprietary
    battery and use of memory sticks, but at least the f717 has an f2-2.4

  2. Been delighted with mine - excellent handling and results. I would
    suggest carry a spare battery or two though, unless you want the added
    weight of the extra battery pack.

  3. I got a non-Nikon battery for my 5700 for £15 - it lasts as long as the
    Nikon one wot came with it. I tend to find that one battery is needed per
    256mb flash card.

    and why, prey tell, do you think you need 5-6 spares? You do know they are
    rechargeable, don't you?

    three lasted me a week when I accidentally grabbed the wrong cord for the
    charger. True, I set the auto-off to the minimum and continuous focus off -
    but I was the one that screwed up. I was nervous and only took around 400

    I presume, btw, that you really don't have a 5700 and simply like whatever
    you have better.
