Yeah mine too 47AX. Mine came with my new D50 from jessops in the UK. Replasment will be for a better model so i'm not complaining. I just got 2 1500mAh hahnel batteris with my new battery grip and allready have two jessops 1300mAh bateries so i'm lucky enough not to reley on the Nikon one.

Hi,

The battery shipped with the body (bought in august 05)is an 47AH.

Just got a ref number

Funny enough , the 2nd battery I bought for backup is a 44xx (not on the list)

All this happening in Luxembourg.

Nice WE.

Nicolas

I got one with mine. Local importer changed it for an ENELa in the moment. Excellent service, and a great reason to buy official imported products.

I've just received my replacement EN-EL3e. Too bad the D50 doesn't support the battery memory, but otherwise I'm very happy with it. Bought my D50 in august, in the Netherlands.

My D50 came with an EN-EL3a, It might have been a mistake (they had D50s and D70s' on display, and I got the D50 display first) The day I bought it I discovered a hot pixel on the CCD, and they exchanged it the next week for a brand new one. So I got an EN-EL3a, and a brand new body... good deal.

hi all. you might have a while to wait yet if you have only been waiting 2 weeks. i registerd my battery on the 10th november and only just recieved my replasment today 12 december. Some good news though for UK users. Looks like nikon are replasing them with EN-EL3e
instead of the EN-EL3a.

I got an email 6 days ago saying it would be 5-10 days and it would be the uprated version, quite what the uprate is I'll have to wait and find out.

The faulty batteries were made between may and september last year so mine was a year old when I bought the camera in august, at least now I should have a new battery
