    Chimes with what I was told when I ordered mine at the Park Cameras event. Seems Olly are keeping to schedule. Christmas comes but once a year - just a bit earlier this year!

        WooHoo! I was hoping they might start shipping sooner rather than later. Wonder where I am in the Warehouse Express queue?

          In theory there's no difference between theory and practice but in practice there is.

            Yes, this is what I have heard too - supplies from around the end of the week.

            Am making enquiries about the 70-300 and the new 50-200 SWD.

              Just received this email from WE:

              Dear Customer,

              Thank you for your email.

              Unfortunately, we are yet to receive a clear indication from our suppliers with regards to when we can expect this in.

              We aim to fulfil your order as soon as possible. In the meantime, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by the delay.

              Kind Regards,
              Warehouse Express

                  A small consignment of 70-300s has been and gone, I'm told, with more expected by the end of the week to early next week.

                  No ETA for 50-200s yet.

                    They told me I'm No.7 on the list and they should get enough in to cover mine at least.

                        I rang WE express only a few days ago. I too asked about my E-3 order. The waiting is doing my head in. I have a job for it on the 9th of December and hope to get to grips with it a week before then.

                        Anyway, WE did not give any indication there would be a problem as I was one of the first to put my order in.

                        Interestingly, they have back orders of over 350 Nikon D300's and only 200 in the first delivery..someone is going to dissapointed there.

                          Unless I have completely misunderstood the web site. Digital Depot are showing the E3 as IN STOCK.

                            I mailed Digital Depot.They told me that they expect the E3 at the end of the month.

                            The good thing is that I am 4th on the list

                            Fingers crossed.

                            All the best

                              I e-mailed Digital Depot last night regarding expected delivery of my E-3 and my position on 'the list'

                              I received a reply today, delivery expected by the end of the month, I'm 5th on the list

                              I wonder if I'll have it before I go to the E-System day at Black & Lizars in Belfast on the 27th Nov. I'd love to take it with me, ask plenty of questions and then take it out of my pack
