    That's $325 + 13 shipping. Also, from that page, looks like Amazon has it for pre-order at $300 with free Prime shipping.

    Rats. My order at the higher price was from a third party shipper (Ace Photo) and Amazon won't honor the new, even better price.

    (Ace has met their commitment, seems churlish to return the unit to them just because I changed my mind after finding a better price).

    Some days you get the bear, some days the bear gets you :biggrin:.

    No. The grip comes without batteries. Note that it can be used with a single battery (doesn't necessarily need 2).

    For that price, it should come with at least one battery.

    You would then cringe at what I paid for the battery grip and AA adapter for my Nikon D300.

    :rofl:

    The price has dropped since the D300 was released and there are good 3rd party grips available. I would assume that if the OM-D sells in sufficient quantities that 3rd party suppliers will step up and offer lower priced alternatives in the not-too-distant future. (It doesn't elude me that purchasing a battery grip for a camera body that was purchased primarily due to it's small size and weight is a bit...well, you know.)

    I went into the Denver store after reading about someone finding an E-M5 in the Boulder shop. I was on a cross country road trip and they were open on Sunday when I had an issue with my camera. They had a certified tech there and helped me out. Of course the tech encouraged me to try the grip on and see how it felt - I saw the price and bought it. My souvenir from Colorado :)

    Great store and great service. I only wish we had a store like that here.
