    I haven't either, but that's why I got curious when I heard the Sigma 17-50 was doing this. I'll give it a test and see.

    Re: Battery Usage

    My buddy shoots a 7Dm2 and Is constantly changing batteries and concerned about it. I never worry. I usually use it 2 days and it still has 50% charge...he has gone through 4 batteries at least! He doesn't like me teasing him about it...but that's my job!

    I've witnessed/gotten a chuckle out of this phenomenon myself; so apparently it's not limited to the 7D MII. If memory serves the 7D MII is good for around 700-800 shots on a single battery while the D7200 and the D750 are rated for around 1,200 shots per battery; one of the best ratings in the industry.

    One of the photogs I 2nd shoot weddings with is a Cannon shooter. She shoots the 5DM3. It hasn't mattered whether I'm shooting the D7100/D610/D810, I can shoot a 6 hour event on a single camera battery, while she's changing at least twice (usually 3 times just to be safe). Flash batteries I go through just as quick before I added the external battery pack. After shooting a couple of weddings with the grip on the camera just for the 2nd battery, I've stopped adding the grip weight because the 2nd battery hasn't been needed.

    Re: Battery Usage

    Just an update: I am changing the battery in the D7200 at 13% charge left, with a count of 2595 pics on that battery. I think that is pretty darn good. I hope the rest of you are doing that well
