    Just letting everyone know I received this email message today from Olympus in regard to a battery order that I placed on May 11:

    "Thank you for contacting Olympus Imaging America and providing us with an opportunity to assist you. These batteries have been on back order. However, we do have a shipment due in mid July."

    Sincerely,

    I called today on an order placed on June 11th and they told me they are expecting a shipment end of July .. so different answers for different people .. so will keep on using the 3rd party Ebay batteries which seem to be working alright.

    I placed an order in April and when I checked in with Oly USA in mid-May they told me "two weeks." :rolleyes: Since that was about 5 weeks ago and I still haven't seen it, I'm not holding my breath...

    But late July would be nice.
