Nikon D500 updates part 4

More Nikon D500 updates (see also part 1part 2 and part 3):

→ I received some reports from readers having issues with 3rd party batteries and lenses used with the Nikon D500 camera:

“My Nikon D500 will not recognize 3rd party batteries (e.g. Hahnel) which my D810 accepts quite happily.”

“It seems the new D500 cannot use 3rd party batteries. Tested my new D500 with 3rd party/oem battery and the camera flashes the battery bar a few times then shuts off. Battery was full and verified working with other cameras. This behavior was tested on two different D500 cameras. Original batteries worked fine.”

See this dpreview discussion for more info.
