Hello All,
This is my first post here. I've been lurking around for some time now and have learned a lot. There is a great wealth of information here and hope to learn more in the future.

My problem is this. Both Nikon batteries that I own seem to discharge at an accelerated rate. If I insert a freshly charged battery and don't do anything but let the camera sit with the power switch off, within five hours the battery is discharged to approximately 50%. Within a 24 hour period it is completely dead. Again this happens with both batteries. I was just wondering if this is normal? Is this happening to anyone else? Could it possibly be that both batteries are degraded or is there something wrong with my D200? A bit more information is that I have the 18-200 VR attached. I thought that maybe because the VR switch was in the "on" position that it might have some affect; no joy, because in the off position the batteries still get drained. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
