    Hopefully by Christmas. I'm impatiently waiting too.

    While you're waiting here are four places with samples, including RAWs (on two of them) you can play with (if you haven't already).

        They were showing on Amazon for later delivery this month. Checking today it is/was, apparently, a figment of my imagination. That being the case, I cancelled my order.

          Apparently there is two in stock here.

          I am waiting for answer from Oly Australia, but initially it was to be late December here & only limited stock in the first shipment. It may be my Chrissy present will be a late one this time, but we will see.

          Check this too. http://www.pricerunner.co.uk/pli/29-...Compare-Prices

            ^ Only one left and it's in America.

            One 5* and one 3* rating = feels cheap and plasticy which doesn't bode well - and no built-in HDR?

            Would seem a hands-on might be required to allay any such fears.

            Persoally, I'm looking for something that will fit inside a jacket/coat without being too bulky and with a decent reach and the stylus-1 would seem to be such a beast.

              I like the photos I've seen come out of an XZ-2 & this Stylus 1 uses the same sensor, with the equivalent to using the M.4/3's 14-150 lens but with a constant f/2.8 & with the EVF of the E-M5 (& variable back light of the E-M1), it should make a nice camera to take with me most of the time (within reason) instead of the E-M5 kit. I didn't get a PEN without an inbuilt EVF & got the E-M5 because it did & the other great things going for it & I wouldn't get an XZ-2 because of the short zoom range & no EVF, so the Stylus 1 looks like it brings a few nice things to tempt me now. I'm hoping the new standard eyecup (EP-14) will be better than the standard eyecup for the E-M5 but I have a spare EP-11 to use otherwise, which unfortunately sticks out a little more & reduces the pocket-ability of it.

                I have just spoken to Oly Australia & they received enough stock yesterday to fill present orders here so hopefully you will see some there soon too. If all goes well, I might have mine this week.

                  received this yesterday from SRS Watford
                  Hello

                  Sorry for the delay with this camera. The latest we have from Olympus is that they should be with us the middle of December.

                      I have found out the shop (in Sydney & online) I'm dealing with is buying through Camera House (Australia) which franchises to small businesses & also sells to others & it has to come through their system before the shop sees it, so I might get mine late next week if I'm lucky, just in time for Christmas... hopefully.

                          I'm told the Stylus 1 is shipping this week but my hunch is that it may be mainly a core of Olympus dealers who stock the E-M1 that will have priority for the Stylus 1.

                              Myself, I would have placed the order before telling others.
