I think all UK stock lands in the port of Hamburg (Oyl EU HQ) before coming here...

Some places waiting for stock of the 12-100 are quoting 14th Dec so cameras may arrive then too?

If you try and order one on the website it says "Arriving soon"!

I had the same....

The wait is now over, the rumors are now at an end – the E-M1 Mark II is ready for you! Experience for yourself what the reviews have been raving about all along.
In case you are still wondering whether to go for our flagship model now or not, we are highlighting, once again, its latest features, demonstrating technology in precision. We loaded up quite a few E-M1 Mark IIs along with a selection of lenses and invited guests from all over Europe to a remote area in Andalusia, Spain, to put the camera to the test. Check out their outstanding results, demonstrating moments of speed, mobility and high image quality in the wilderness – and then get your hands on your very own E-M1 Mark II today!

Best regards,
Your OLYMPUS Team

Annoyingly WEX did not know when they were getting any 12-100 PRO lenses in so my order may be delayed for the lack of the lens in stock :(

Hopefully they will dispatch the items separately..... (fingers still crossed)

Ditto on LCE. I am making a rare visit into Colchester today so I'll do a chasing raid on Dave and the team.;)

In the interests of fairness no actual date was ever given so no real cause to complain. Unless of course every where else is fulfilling orders and I'm still waiting in which case I may be forced to fully engage grumpy mode. *smash

False alarm for me. Email from Wex confirming my order was in so rang them to confirm. Seems the camera and lens are not in but the spare battery is!

I must have hit gold with Cameraworld Chelmsford because I got a spare battery as well which comes in a nice plastic box:D. The charger however had me reaching for the manual because when I put it on charge the led was flashing orange which indicated a false charge on my EM1, turns out this is normal flashing quicker when it gets nearly charged.

So for me possibly Friday or early next week.

Hi Andy -

I was going to wait until tomorrow to collect mine, however my lunch date finished early, so I called in to SRS and collected the camera late afternoon - I wasn't the only one as another was collecting same only his box was larger - presumably a kit.

I'm busy again tomorrow so picture taking will be restricted.

Even without a grip attached the feel of the camera gives me confidence - it's feels big bold and beefy. :tup

I have had my Black Friday back ordered 300mm confirmed as available from Park Cameras but not sure when they are dispatching it. Will be nice to try the two together at the weekend (crossing my fingers).
A bit of an expensive month but I've been waiting for almost a year for the 300 to be on offer.

I didn't pre-order an E-M1 II however I did register interest with SRS some time ago.

I received a call today asking if I was still interested as they'd put one aside for me, I of course said "Yes please", it arrives tomorrow.

No, this comprehensive review suggests it's nowhere near the 2000x card, which is why I've reluctantly paid out four times as much for the latter.

My pre-order of OM-D E-M1 mkII is arriving today from Clifton Cameras. They told me they were expecting delivery of the new cameras last week but for some reason they were delayed until yesterday. They had batteries in stock last week when I ordered mine as an addition to my September pre-order. I do not know if there are any left.

Mrs T
22nd December 2016, 01:52 PM
They are a really great shop and I think it was unfair that they had to chase Olympus for the stock when several other stores were sending out cameras. I also collected a spare battery and the 12-100mm. Now just need to wait for three more sleeps! The batteries are on charge though. And that LED is bright!

Eclairewilliams
22nd December 2016, 09:52 PM
Finally received mine today. It was from the Olympus online shop and although sent by DHL Express last Friday it got put on hold in Belgium due to incorrect paperwork relating to the lithium batteries. It was a very painful and frustrating wait until it arrived today. Most of the cameras which were stuck on hold were released on Tuesday night but for some reason mine and one other didn't get released until late last night.
I've charged the battery, put on a screen protector and changed a few menu settings. Now looking forward to getting outside with it and exploring the features in the next few days :-)

Hi there

I'd like to enquire which Screen Protector you've used for the E-M1 Mk II, i.e. which manufacturer and for which camera it's specified.
My reason for asking is that, based on comments I'd seen, that it's the same size as the E-M1 Mk I, this week I've tried two different types (specified for E-M1) and been totally unsuccessful! I just can't get them to seal properly.
I've now been advised elsewhere that the Mk II LCD is approximately 1 mm narrower in its vertical height and is apparently more akin to the dimensions of the E-M10 Mk 2.
That said I haven't yet found any supplier showing a specific version for the E-M1 Mk II.
Many thanks
Graham

It was these, they come in a pack of 6
1x 6x Savvies SU75 UltraClear Screen Protector for Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II
I have no idea if these will prove Ok. Just thought I would try them

Hi Paul
Many thanks for your feedback.
Can you advise which particular version you've ordered - they seem to have several.

Regards
Graham

Graham,
I also use protectionfilms24 and the type I use is the Vikuiti ADQC27.
I've also used one of these on my E-M1 for several years without problems. I chose this version because it has anti-reflective properties.

Savvies are great in my opinion. I've used them for all our OMD bodies (three EM1, one EM5 Mk ii and now the 1 Mk II between husband and me).
I've put one on the Mk II which I already had from a set for the Mk I. It's not a perfect fit but it extremely close - only a tiny edge not perfect which might be me not getting it perfectly straight. So I'll leave it on for now. The Savvies are very good value.

I understand the EM-1 mark 2 screen is a fraction smaller than mark 1

I'm going to controversial here and ask if anyone has actually scratched a screen.
Over 13 years of using digital cameras I'm not aware I have, and I'm not over careful.

That is exactly what I did with the same result. I had a pack of 6 Savies screen protectors for my E-M1 and I found I had four left unused so I put one on my new E-M1 mk2. As you say there is a small strip about 1mm left uncovered. However when you switch the camera on there is a black border surrounding the illuminated image on the screen so the uncovered strip hardly matters. As I actually managed to get the protective film on whitout any bubbles at first attempt I am very happy with the result.

Only once and that was with a Leica M9. I was quite miffed about it as the camera was new and the damage was apparently inflicted by the screen coming into contact with a coat button. I subsequently learned that the Leica M9 screen was notorious for being made of a relatively soft plastc material. Subsequent models have had gorilla or saphire glass. I have never had any problems with a variety of Pentax DSLRs in the past nor with Olympus OM-D cameras. I suspect that screen protectors are unnecessary but as the cost of protectors is fairly trivial I prefer to play safe.

Nope, but I like an anti-reflective screen, so fit a protector to provide that finish.

Yes, a Sony RX100 while carried round in an empty jeans pocket. I suspect it got scraped on the brass studs that some jeans have.

It looks as if supplies of the E-M1 Mk II could be improving now. This morning WEX, Jessops, London Camera Exchange and SRS are all showing the camera body in stock. I think it will be quite a long time before we see any worthwhile discounts, though.

Let's hope the Panasonic GH5 has some influence as it undercuts the EM1mk2 by 200. Failing that it could be November (Black Friday)??
Kind regards mike

Thanks Ron, checked WEX and my pre-order still said waiting for delivery but elsewhere the web site said in stock so gave them a buzz. Yes they are in stock but my order said awaiting delivery because they are waiting for the 12-100 lens. They agreed to post my camera and spare battery out to me and will let me know when the lens comes in while maintaining my 100 discount. They have no idea when that will be and Olympus had not responded to their email.
Anyway I am sat here waiting for the delivery van even as I type. The clouds are thickening and we are due to get heavy rain later and I have other things to do tomorrow so will have to make do with cuddling it and investigating the new menu system. Oh and charging the batteries of course!
