Chris to be honest I haven't noticed any difference in the battery life but then again I don't think I have ever just continuously shot until I've run the battery down , I'm always in and out of the menu and viewing my shots on the LCD to delete off my duds . I spent the day at Pensthorpe Nature Reverse last weekend and fired off about 700 shots half of which were shot with an O/S lens the other half with a non O/S and spent quite a lot of time viewing my shots , all of this was done without having to eat into the second battery which is about the norm for me even without the battery pack .
I will keep an eye on the battery life but I must admit this is the first time I have heard anyone mention this .
I think even if there was a loss in the battery life when using the grip I would probably still use it because of the better handling qualities , when I moved from my Lumix FZ8 to the Nikon D90 I was amazed at how a larger heavier camera could feel so much more comfortable to use and now I'm of the same mind with the grip .
I didn't realize an IR remote was part of the package , oh well I'll put it with my other one .
