    Has anybody updated their G2 to firmware version 1.1? I read somewhere (can't remember where) that it locks-out third party batteries so they won't work to power the camera anymore. Could that really be true? Does the it render third-party batteries useless, or will they still work after the update?

    There are 3rd party batteries that are chipped to work with the G2. I got one from Amazon that works perfectly. I don't know about 1.0 vs. 1.1, though.
