I've been searching for one of these and it seems everyone is out of stock or back ordered. Cannot seem to find anything in the EH-5 family (a,b or c), from a trusted source. Any ideas what might be going on with this? Thanks in advance!!

Nikon still trying to get back up to full production after the disasters of last year.

There are 106 EH-5's listed right now on Ebay.
Not all are Nikon, but a fairly large number are.
You only need one afterall.
These sell for around $39 or so.

Mate,

I'm not sure if you already bought it. I just bought the EH-5 and it doesn't work on the D700. I don't know why. The Nikon website states that the compatible version is EH-5a. However, I can't find any differences between the two versions. Voltage output is the same. The connector fits the DC-IN port on the D700 body. So be careful with what you buy.

I recently purchased an EH-5b from B&H and it works fine with both my D700 and my D300

EH-5b does work. I think all three versions have the same voltage output. So they should all work with the D700. However, mine is defective. It has been confirmed by Nikon support. So I am in process to get my money back.

Dear God,
So far today, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped. I haven't lost my temper. I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or overindulgent. I'm very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed ... and from then on, I'm probably going to need a lot more help.
Amen
