My NiMh rechargeables are 2900mAh, and I haven't found any cells that are less than 2750mAh to work reliably with the *ist D; they work for about 20 shots and then just flash the low battery icon in the panel.
My experience is that the Eneloops are excellent. A big advantage for me is that I can pick the camera up weeks or even months after the last time I used it and the Eneloops have still got a good charge and will run the camera perfectly.

... Finally - the *ist D an "old dog". Don't agree with you at all on that. I have two of them, and they are excellent cameras for the money you have to pay for them now.
I didn't mean it in a derogatory way. I wouldn't have bought one if I thought ill of it.

Let me check. 4GB Sandisk Ultras and no-name CR-V3 Li-ion batteries work great. Mine is reserved for TTL flash and M42 macro work.
