    I pre-ordered an olympus battery for my OMD a while ago..they just charged my card on Thursday. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I bought a knock-off for a fraction of the price and it is working great so I canceled my Olympus order.

    I guess this means they are getting at least some in stock.

    That's encouraging, but what country are you in?

    I pre-ordered a BLN-1 battery from Olympus in May. Still no word on when it might ship. It still shows as available only for pre-order on the Olympus Store website. Unlike the poster above, my credit card shows no activity from the Olympus Store.

    Contcting the Olympus Store doesn't yield any better information. They just tell you that due to higher than expected interest in this product, they can't keep up with demand. They are unable to (or just won't) offer any estimated delivery timeframe.
