A genuine BLM-5 battery is around 69, has anyone yet bought a non-genuine battery for their E-5?
I've been searching and prices range from around 6 from Hong Kong up to 29 for a Hahnel with some in between at around 19. I'm hoping Olympus may do the similar offer of a free battery like they did with with the BLS-1 for my E620 but I can't hold my breath too long.

I bought this one, so that I could carry a spare and its perfectly fine
