      maybe.. maybe not.. you just gotta hope they run out of EN-EL3 (plus no longer in production).. and only have EN-EL3a to give away.. but i don't think it'll happen. EN-EL3 is still part of the D50 kit.

          No, just bring the battery.

              KK, always see things in the positive light. Must always see half glass full. Not half glass empty.

                Damn!!!! mine is affected too... 47 series
                luckily the second battery is not... can still continue to shoot, if the need arises.

                Called Nikon Malaysia this morning... "we dont have replacement stock... try calling back on Monday next week".

                    It's funny.....I bought both my EL-EL3 3 years ago and they are batch numbers 2A 2J - very far away from the "4" series batch numbers affected by this recall. Guess what, 3 years ago, these batts were Made In Japan. Mine has it clearly stated at the back of the battery. It says "Made In Japan", not "Nikon Corp, Japan"

                    I read that the batches affected by this recall were Made in China. (could be mistaken)

                    If so, I think this might be a clear example (and many will argue with me) that it is difficult to track quality once they OEM a product out to an outside supplier outside their control.

                    *yes coming bcak to that Made In Thailand issue with the D200*

                    sigh....

                            Make friends with a Jap buddy and ask a favour from him/her.

                            Besides, I think it's not dire problem that needs to be replaced immediately. There are possibilities of shorting the battery but if it was too dangerous to even use it normally, Nikon would prohibit usage of the battery all in one go.

                              yeah...I will ask my Jap junior to help. Definitely not going to trouble my prof for the personal thingy...

                              So far only 4 cases of battery overheat/explode around the world...that's very very rare cases consider the number of D70 sold...and D100...and D50...
