Free grip - date clarification required

Maybe Ian can answer this please.

The Oly promotion web site says:

Claim an HLD-6 when you purchase the amazing Olympus
OM-D E-M5 before 30th April 2012.

So does that mean by 29th April or midnight tonight?

I am still undecided if to move to Micro four-thirds or another brand. Maybe I will have to decide today to benefit from the offer.

I am hoping for some slack, as I haven't got the camera (and therefore the serial number) yet. I did sign up for the grip and have my claim staked as it were.

You'll probably have to get the European Court of Justice to rule on that one

Pre-order and register today, you can always cancel the pre-order if it is not accepted by Olympus.

Disappointed that there is no official word from Olympus to clarify

As long as you fill the online registration form by today, you still have another month to provide a serial number.

If the camera isn't delivered by end of May i'd seek clarification from Olympus as to whether or not they will honour their promotion after this deadline.
