    As far as I am aware, this does not happen with my camera.
    However, I will check it this weekend and see if I can reproduce your observation.

    I'm not worried, either.

    I thought I remembered Jake saying something about a battery drain issue. Did some digging and came up with this thread, Mike. You use a third party lens, don't you?

    Thanks Cindy, after reading through the thread i think Jake had a different/more serious issue than me, i did learn something from the thread though, i will fully charge the battery and leave the camera with no lens on,then with the lens fitted but VR off, as my next two steps.

    I don't know if it's relevant for either of you but don't some third-party battery grips create this issue? I'm going by memory(!) but I seem to recall there being issues with some previous Nikon body, or bodies, where the battery grip would drain the battery just as you're describing.

    My D500 will show 98% when I put a fully charged battery in. After that, though, I'm not seeing the kind of daily drain you are. I get 2000 shots or so per battery, and usually change out the battery well before it is fully drained.

    Not looked at what it says when i first put it in but will do next time,will charge it first thing in the morning and start some logical tests, ie no lens,lens with VR turned off, my main concern is someone on another forum has just had the 500 back to Nikon for battery drain and they had it for 43 days.
