I queried this when I could only buy one (wanted two to avoid the shipping charges). Olympus UK email said:

"The Olympus Online Shop thanks you for your email and the interest you show for our products.

The restriction on the quantity is due to stock restriction. We have only one HLD-5 in stock at the moment. Our ream cannot give you an update as to replenishments, but you will find below the link that will help you find a local retailer:

The Olympus Online Shop Team remains at your service for further queries,
Kind Regards,
For the Olympus Online Shop Team"

But I think you may be correct!

So, the OP could ask if someone needs a lens cap for a tenner (that's what I bought in the end as with no shipping it then cost me 9.99 - 6.90 = 3.09), or whatever instead of a grip.

It is getting more complicated though!
