    Funny, Olympus MUST have known they'd be selling OMD's out the door - but just try and find a BLN-1. Thankfully, the grip works with just a battery in the camera body. Soon come, I hope. Love my new OMD!!!!!!!!

    None of the manufacturers seem to get this right. I remember when the GH2 came out and it was months and months before the battery was available. Nikon's new D800? The battery it uses is on back-order at all the normal places.

    The $60 price tag for the BLN-1 is also rather steep. Hopefully in a few months, one of the Chinese manufacturers that does clone batteries will have a $6 version, like they do for the BLM-5 and BLS-5 right now.
