Timeline for lens release?

Any ideas when we are likely to see, in UK shops, the promised 40-150 and 9-18 micro four-thirds lenses?

I've just bought an E-P2 and am keen to extend its family. I would prefer to do this with dedicated lenses rather than with adaptors, unless someone can convince me otherwise!

If only they would do an E-PL1 with 9-18 as a kit

9-18, any week now, certainly before the end of the month. 14-150, some time during next month.

Ian,

Any ideas on prices?

I'm also keen to add these to my bag!

According to SRS, they are thinking of 699 for the 9-18 and 599 for the 14-150.

Might just get an adaptor to start with and see how I get on with my existing 9-18, and the f4 40-150 (which does contrast A/F) which Currys have for 79.99.

SRS are selling adaptors for 120 unboxed, if you look through their Ebay shop.

Thanks Stephen. I'd like the 14-150 first as that would be a lens equivalent to the Leica on my E3. The 9-18 would be an added bonus!
