    No probs - raining here so haven't had chance to take the camera out today - the 50mm arrived as did the bag today

    The batteries 'feel right' and took about the right time to charge, I suspect the only way to tell will be in the 'field' but having put it in it does, at least work - so we will see - oh the Hoya filter came today so its been a camera fest

    Well I used it all weekend and its only just started to lose the top bit of charge - thing is that lens mucnges battereis as ithe IS is whirring away all the time and I am usinh AFservo at the moment a lot so the AF is going so I'd say I was pretty happy - may buy a coulpe more before I go which would give me 5.

    They are pretty obvious in e-bay as they are the ones that lok like canon batteries and specifically show all the packaging in them I can PM you the linkif you like - but TBPH I'd be amazed if they were not fake at that price

    I really can't say that a pari are not worth 26 dollars! they are certainly better as a pari than less than 1 'original' brand
