  1. I’ve also read that the black and gray batteries should not be used together in the grip, have a matched set of either type to use in the grip.

    I bought 2 new black ones when I got me E5, because Oly hadn’t shipped extras to any vendors at the time (I hope that’s changed now) I get ridiculous battery life in the E5 with the old batteries (2000+ images, a collection of videos and liberal use of playback), I imagine that when I get a 2nd gray one that I’ll be able to take several thousand images between charges.

  2. I just got my E5 for just less than 2 weeks. I noticed that the battery life is very poor. Overall, I have only charged it twice and the battery power lasted me less than 250 shots. Generally, I don’t use Live View to shoot, and don’t use the LCD anymore than what most people would to check their pictures. Do you think there is a problem with the battery or camera’s motherboard?

  3. Peter,
    I’m sorry you’re having troubles with the battery. My guess is that it may be a problem with the battery, though it may just be that it hasn’t received a sufficient number of charges to reach full capacity. I’ll forward your post to Olympus and see if they have any suggestions.

  4. Peter, I just heard back from Olympus. They suggest you call Olympus customer service at 800-622-6372 and they’ll take care of you. -Jay
