Weird that they included a non-compatible battery

Tempting to split and resell to fund an 03 lens.

$210 at Newegg plus $1.99 shipping.

D-LI109 battery though, not for Q. But it is better value, right?
What's a better value than what?

Newegg is top notch - one of the best vendors I use. The only thing to watch with them is their return policy on certain items. They are the vendor I use most often for computer parts and peripherals. Also their weekly and weekend email specials are hard to beat.
+1 from me as well. They can have return issues but that is because they are primarily a computer parts retailer and that field is a tough one on folks using things for a week and then trying to rerun them.

Thanks for the mention of ShopRunner. Perhaps a post about it to let more folks know would be appropriate?

In essence, ShopRunner is like Amazon Prime where you pay a subscription fee yearly and you get free 2 day shipping. It's different because you can use the service at a bunch of different e-tailers instead of just Amazon.

I actually went to cancel my 30 day free trial yesterday (needed a WiFi router ASAP from the Egg) and they offered 3 more months for no extra money. Make 3 purchases in the 3 month period, get a year free (normally $79). Your online account gives you a running tally of how much you've "saved" on shipping costs. And did I mention, it's free 2 day shipping?

It's pretty slick, though I don't do much shopping outside of ebay/Amazon/B&H/etc Oh yeah, it gives you free delivery from Domino's Pizza as well. If only I didn't recently give up pizza...that would be used all the time.

If Newegg, Adorama, and B&H are on it then it would be well worth it for me and the office.

Yes, but they list for something like $60 and routinely sell for $35 so it could be resold to further lower the direct cost of a Killer Q +02 combo!
