Well I finally did it and bought myself a D5000!
I'm super excited since I'm going on a vacation next week. I have a few questions on accessory and it would be awesome if some of you guys could help me answer them.
First, I was thinking of buying a replacement battery and looked on Amazon. I found this battery:

which has 38 ratings with 4.5 stars. I was wondering if anyone has tried these batteries or has experienced Nextop batteries.
Also I found these:

Which one would you recommend?

Also I need to get a memory card for my camera and I'm thinking of getting the SanDisk Extreme III 8GB (Not the 30MB/s one) for $40. Has anyone tried any other memory cards that haven't lagged when shooting in continuous mode? (I know some will be fast for the first few shots then will significantly slow down, which is not what I want)

Thanks so much!
