    I wouldn't bother unless you are still using film. I use the contax all the time. My last outing to europe, I only used 3 batteries for almost 3000 shots (ok, it was 2800 and change!)

    PS: But buy GOOD quality lithium; brand names, not "X"

    you mean, if you do not have a vertical grip? i would be interested to know myself. as for the vertical grip option, four 2500mAh AAs will last forever.

    That's correct, Irakly, I do not have the accessory vertical grip. The better 2CR5 batteries can be purchased for around $10 each, but in looking around, I think a few rechargeable Eveready batteries (or something like that) with a decent charger looks like it could be purchased for under $50. Less expensive in the long run, I think.

    Try Ebay for Duracell or Panasonic 2CR5s. Much less than $10 each.

    For example: http://cgi.ebay.com/6-PANASONIC-2CR5...QQcmdZViewItem

    You can get rechargeable 2CR5s here

    http://cgi.ebay.com/2CR5-RECHARGEABL...em118Q2el1247;

    here

    http://cgi.ebay.com/2-Rechargeable-P...QcmdZViewItem;

    and here

    http://cgi.ebay.com/6-Rechargeable-P...em118Q2el1247;

    I've bought both, the Lenmar is better quality but nothing wrong with the cheaper Juice brand either, just doesn't hold charge as long.
