    unfortunately, the 2 places i looked at a month ago (got mine from 17th street in new york, uniquephoto was the other place) now have them backordered, too. Depending on how desperate you are, someone on ebay is selling this overpriced at 83usd but apparently there's a significant demand 'coz he now has only 4 left (had 20 last i checked 3-4wks ago).

    Darn. I needed a BLN-1 before heading to Europe for vacation and can't find an OEM one in stock anywhere!

    Contact ********** in NY, the last I knew they had over 100. I purchased 3 from them just a short time back.

    Likewise, bought 2 a few weeks ago and was told then there still some left from the order they received of 100. May be all gone by now but worth a try.

    I'm waiting too. The one battery seems to last pretty well.
