Hey guys... this is geared for those who own 5d Mark 2's and those especially who own the 7D and 5D mark 2's... I have the 7D and loved most of all the wonderful battery life... I could shoot around 500-700 shots on one battery charge... It went on and on and on... I recently got the 5d Mark 2... when I got it, it came with a package including a vertical battery grip, an extra Canon OEM Battery amongst other things... So with the 2 genuine batteries and grip, I had an expectation that I could get a nice chunk of battery life... but even with the two batteries, when I checked the battery status option in camera, it said my 2 batteries, off of a full charge, were both around the 170 shot mark and were both around 40%... Granted, to be fair, the kit included the 24-105 IS L Lens, but does this camera and lens, really have this crappy of a battery life? The LCD review is only on like 3 seconds or something like that, shooting primarily through the VF with little to no Live View and for the most part, all photos, no video's... I'd love to hear your guy's feedback.
