Reason for replacing the BLS-1 by BLN-1
In reply to LinusP, Feb 13, 2012

I researched about the reason why Oly now has the BLN-1 instead BLS-1.

A blogger writes ( and i believe him ) that some IDI0TS managed to put the BLS-1 in wrong orientation into the PEN's, and pushed until the contacts were damaged, and the requested Oly to repair the PEN camera.

The BLS-1 has ( according to the blogger ) rounded edges and so its not possible anymore to put it in wrong.

Kirk Tuck says the BLN-1s are physically bigger than the BLS-1s, so I can't imagine there'd be any way to use BLN-1s in cameras designed for BLS-1s (see http://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/2012/02/olympus-fans-rejoice-om-d-is-real-and.html ). As for whether BLS-1s could be used in the EM-5, I haven't read anything about that yet.
