How bad is the battery life really?

It isn't that bad at all, if you're mainly shooting photos. It will survive about 6-8 hours of sightseeing and heavy snapping, with GPS off; maybe 5-6 if you keep the GPS on.

When I travel I carry a second battery with me but rarely need it with this camera. I've never had a compact go for days on a single charge and am used to charging a camera at the end of the night anyway.

If you're recording a lot of video though, I'd say the battery would power you through about 3-4 hours of back to back videos. Not great, but they really have designed this as a still camera with a video feature. The focus is more on photos and the battery life reflects this.
