Thanks, and yes, there are VERY mixed reviews, so I take a huge chance, because I also ordered the quick release for it, but this camera here is because I want to try some very light "things" = I have the D3x and a 2 good stable tripods, but all is very heavy, so I am going into the lightness-world here - or at least trying it
I thought the same thing, oh well, live and learn...
By the way, I have been using a couple of Ricoh DB-65 batteries with my DP2 Merrill, they work great. (Not too sure about those aftermarket batteries though)
Standard filters will fit with the hood mounted but the design will block access to filter if you need to adjust it (polarizer, vari-nd etc). Some people have 'customized' the hood with to open it up which I am considering doing as well, especially for use with the AML-2 close-up lens.
