    Ordered one today from my local store (UK). How long do you think it will take before it arrives. Weeks or months :)

    Working in England this week and I've been ringing round loads of places today but nobody seems to have them or know when they will get them ..... so I would say "don't hold your breath"

    Oly "forgot" to place orders on the BLN-1 in the chinese factories and now these spend all their time producing clones :)

    Olympus seems to be (wisely) favoring local dealers on early distribution. Got a black EM-5 with 12-50 kit lens two weeks ago from our local camera shop. They had five in stock. Ordered the grip and an extra battery when I got the camera. The grip came in one week later. The battery came in two weeks later. The store got a number of batteries at the same time and I picked up a second one, no problem. The sales person at our store was very helpful, too. Can't think of any better reason to support our local camera shop.

    I received an email from Mike's Camera in Denver, Colorado saying they would have the Olympus batteries this week. Picked one up ordering on line. Will see if they actually get delivered.
