Got mine on Pre-Order at Warehouse Express, anyroads emailed yesterday asking them when do they expect to get them in stock to which they replied "Unfortunately we have no confirmed date as yet", which to me doesn't sound good as i could be in for a long wait, as im on holiday from work in a couple of weeks, and would love to have it by then.

Thing is thou their price is £399 as to Park Camera's £429,so a good £30 cheaper.

So what you recon hang on and hopefully expect them to get them in stock in the next week or so, or cancel and pay the extra and go and buy from Park Camera's instead.

Or even better, if anybody can give me a link to anywere else that has them in stock.

That is a tricky dilemma.

Might be worth giving Digital Depot a ring.

Their web site has it listed as a deposit only but they are a main Oly dealer so may have some more info if gave them a call.

My advice is to talk to Park Cameras, they will price match.

I think that Digital Depot are in administration - so there might be a delay in them getting stock

Digital Cameras went into Administration in April 2008, but are now trading again.

Hope that is who you are thinking of rather than Digital Depot, as they are a more serious supplier it would be bad news if they were in Administration.

That is bad news. Hope they manage to sell as a going concern otherwise we will lose a good source of Oly gear.

Yes - I have very recently bought a lens from them and could not fault the service.

I've used them a number of times in the past, quick reliable service. Lets hope they find a buyer who will appreciate the assett they would be getting, not just someone who wants to graft a well established name onto their business.
