Not too surprising - lots of rapid fire really extends battery life.  I've taken a couple thousand shots in an evening doing AFMAs in a lens collection (lots of cumulative LCD time to change the settings between shots) and finished with ~65% capacity remaining.  Shooting a hundred shots a day and sleeping every night, you'll see a lot fewer shots on a charge.

Still...pretty awesome!   :D

Yes, the batteries in a 1 Series DSLR are top notch and just plain last longer.  They seem to use ultra premium cells. (Sony does specify different quality levels in their li-0n cells).
