It's not just the battery. They've been raising prices on every product that I've been interested in lately.

If anyone is looking for real deal Canon LP-E6's, try pictureline. Non-US customers have to wire the money, so it's not worth it for them - I paid $32 to wire the money when I ordered three :(

$81 and in stock. The person I spoke to told me they had many.

Typically the generic batteries that are a quarter of the price of the genuine Canon ones do not report their charge level. I don't have a Canon battery grip but I do have one that cost less than half the price & is almost indistinguishable & the cheapo batteries that I have work in that. I can't see any reason why they wouldn't work in the grip after all you can put totally dumb AA batteries in the carrier & the camera works with those.

Here is a US eBay retailer selling genuine Canon batteries at $85 + shipping ($13 to Europe). They take PayPal so no need for wire transfer Genuine Canon LPE6 Li-ION Battery LP-E6 EOS 5D Mark II - eBay (item 270402478919 end time Jul-03-09 17:06:37 PDT)
