    I wouldn't be cheap on something like that. That's like putting cheap knock-off oil into your vehicle, then wondering why it runs poorly.

    I would absolutely be cheap on that. Why not? I mean, seriously it's not that difficult of a part, it has no effect on picture quality whatsoever.

    I say spend the extra money on nicer lenses, but on things that do not effect the picture then why not?

    Also, 3rd party batteries are often fine particularly for costing 1/5th of the price.
