I got one a long time ago when I was using an adapted long lens on my E-P1 (I had to reverse the front section as I think is described in the link to the review you provided). I checked, and both B&H and Adorama list it.Way back in the Olympus DSLR days, I wrote a review of the Manfrotto 293 Telephoto Lens Support Bracket, which you can read here:
I don't know if they still sell it, but it does solve the problem of long lenses without tripod collars. You can get your camera and lenses perfectly balanced on the tripod, as described. Only downside is that the device is kind of heavy.

I have to say, the upcoming Oly 100-400 BETTER have the option of a collar, or I am going to be seriously bummed!! Of course, one wonders when/if this will ever actually be shipped, with COVID-19 screwing everything up; in 2 years, maybe?
