Re: Shipping started?

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

Re: Shipping started?

yep, Deja-Vu,

all over again!

(Although, to be fair, we've know all along that the first release was only going to be a small number, they told us that at the launch, something to do with earthquakes damaging sensor plants and causing shortages if my memory serves me right)

Re: Shipping started?

Had an email through from WEX this morning to say the first batch of E-M1 Mark II bodies are due in Thursday/Friday this week.

Fingers crossed!

I too have pre-ordered from Wex but I have not had an email from them so it rather looks like I will not be getting one of the first batch.

Anybody know when the second batch will be coming?

Re: Shipping started?

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)

Re: Shipping started?

I pre-ordered from Clifton Cameras both the camera and the 12-100 lens. I have already received the lens but I am of course still waiting for the camera.

Re: Shipping started?

for anyone looking to buy the mk2 + 12-40 pro kit I just spotted that Jessops are showing it as available for home delivery (the bare body is of course still "pre-order pending" )
