Re: Shipping started?

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?

Re: Shipping started?

a couple of UK people have reported they have been notified theirs will be delivered on the 16th Dec (one is from Park Cameras)

Let's hope there are more than a handful in the first delivery

I was told that there were 600 for the UK in the first batch and about a month ago 450 had been pre-ordered.

Re: Shipping started?

There are now plenty around in the US, Far East and Oz, but I've yet to hear of one obtained via a retailer in Europe. Has anyone else?

Re: Shipping started?

The Olympus Newsletter which arrived in my inbox 10 minutes ago is titled "The time has come: get your E-M1 Mark II today"

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

If that is the case I may well not be getting mine in the first batch
I ordered mine about two weeks ago.
