Clarification of E-620 and HLD-5 power grip

I know this topic has revealed a lot of confusion (me included) so here is some clarification from Olympus UK:

The most likely thing happening is dealers splitting the HLD-5 that now comes with the E-620 to show the E-620 at a lower price. As always it is therefore a good idea to shop around to compare.

The way I see it is that dealers are now getting an HLD-5 bundled with the E-620, for no additional charge. Some elected to pass the freebie on as an incentive to E-620 purchasers, while others have spread the value around.
