Seems that Nikon did not distribute the full list of problem batteries in the USA.... So, along with their appologies, a new and full list of serial numbers, check again to see if yours are OK or need replacement!

Just so that people don't get overly excited, this update is almost 2 months old. I received a letter from Nikon before Christmas about this update, and the new "additional" batteries were only sold with a D50 and none of them were distributed in the US.

"The lot numbers added at this time apply only to EN-EL3 batteries supplied with purchase of the Nikon D50 digital-SLR camera and distributed in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Argentina."

Thanks Ray. Could explain why I didn't see a notice (2 year old D70, USA model). None of the 3 batteries I have are on the list(s).
