Re: E-P2 in stock

The E-P2 is not, to the best of my knowledge, even shipping in Japan yet. It won't ship officially in Europe until the new year. It's not Amazon UK but an Amazon partner reseller 'SWaK' advertising the E-P2 as in stock. The price they are quoting is almost 200 more than the guide price published by Olympus UK. I'd be cautious about this one...

Very cautious! At best, you can expect to give your hard-earned dosh to a third party to "look after" for at least 3 months, without receiving any interest, and pay a 200 premium for the privilege! You almost certainly won't get the camera any quicker than if you wait for the official release.

Doesn't sound like a good deal to me!
