I've just been looking over the specifications for the new Sony F5 and F55 ahead of a demo day and noticed that they are touting new "Olivine" li-on batteries. 

Does anyone have experience with these? Are they already used on any of other cine cameras yet, and if so do they make a genuine difference with regards to faster charging and longer life... or is it just marketing again?

 

Anything making battery management on-set easier makes me a happy AC!
