I was wondering if anyone is aware of a known issue regarding the F6's battery indicator. My new F6 exhibited some fluctuations of the battery indicator during the initial two weeks that I have had it. Essentially, the indicator would drop a notch during shooting, then return to full power shortly thereafter. This began happening only halfway through the first roll of film and continued throughout the period of use. I posed the question to Nikon Support and the reply was: "The battery indicator reading you describe is a recognized issue with the F6 that requires sending the camera directly to Nikon. This issue is covered by the warranty. For warranty service, please ship the camera to ..." Well, I've only had it two weeks and will surely miss it. Hopefully it is something simple, like a firmware update, and it will soon be back in my hands. Until then, I guess it's back to the N80.
