    Photobattery need to update that page as they actually sell a direct replacement here:
    http://www.photobattery.com/#cr2032
    (scroll down a bit, under "Alkaline mercury replacements").

    For readers in the EU the Small Battery Company ( http://www.smallbattery.company.org.uk/sbc_px825.htm ) provides a similar service.

    I've also noticed that there are small dealers on eBay selling batteries at very attractive prices. I'm concerned about the quality, though; I've heard of "generic" Chinese-made batteries that leak or are otherwise safety hazards. (This was in reference to more common general-purpose batteries, like AAs or D cells, but the same could be true for button cells.) Therefore, I prefer to buy batteries from well-known manufacturers, at least when they're going into anything I care about. I don't cherish the thought of cleaning nasty goo out of a camera's insides.

    Even for those not in Europe, the Small Battery Company has an excellent cross-reference tool. I've used it often to find what I need, even though ordering from them would make no sense for me, since I'm in the US.

    I currently use Energizer 357/303 Silver Oxide batteries in my cameras and in my HP hand-held calculators. These 1.5V button cells are a direct replacement for the MS76.

    Thanks for pushing me to go online -- I will do that.

    Part of why I moved to more modern cameras (the F-80 and the ZX-M) was to avoid the meter battery issues of my older cameras (Spotmatic F, Canon TL, Yashica 12.)

    I think my photography future includes using the hand held meter much more often! (It runs on an AA battery.)
    My other camera is a Pentax
