I did wonder about ordering from Amazon but instead pre-ordered from SRS, who are saying 3 weeks. We'll see!

Yeah, wouldn't think there will be much if anything in it no matter who it's coming from. Have just always always found Amazon so good with delivery, returns etc that they're hard to beat, and obviously carry a bit of clout with suppliers due to the sheer volume of goods they must ship......

Derek

I had the same email - I feel it leaves you in a quandary. I find their automatic responses fairly unhelpful. I have had these sort of emails before and then received a despatching now email the day after (not on a camera) and some where the goods never ever came in to stock!.

I'd like to hear something from Olympus on where the stock is going. I hope they aren't ignoring Amazon!

Of course, Amazon is 4p cheaper, which must appeal to a Dundee-onian :eek:

Jacobs have avoided any commitment to a date when I asked last week...just that we'll be in touch....

It was actually 1p, and I must admit that's what swung the deal their way... :rolleyes:

Peter - I know what you mean, it's just an automatically generated email and bears no real indication as to if and when it will show up with them.... the E-PL2 is still plugging away fine, but that fact doesn't ease the GAS in me! (where's that farting smiley when you need it most?) ;)

How early did you order? I wonder if it's just that their initial allocation has been capped? If I recall they did not list the camera as early as other retailers.

Stephen, it was only about 2-3 weeks ago I pre-ordered from Amazon.... a bit late to the party, so may have to suffer you guys having your grubby mitts on one a while before me.....

Chevvy I don't think anyone got an invite to the Park event, it was just listed on their website under "events. I missed this and only found out about it when IainMacD put a post on here. Of course the object of the event was to drum up more pre-orders rather than satisfy folk like us who can't wait to get our hands on one.:D:D
Interestingly, when I said to the Olympus rep yesterday that I had read on the internet that delivery was expected in the third week in April he sort of muttered " well the end of April or early March".
I suspect it all depends on when the "slow boat from China" arrives at the Port of Felixstowe. Perhaps some of us East Anglian members should get together and try to "liberate" a few OM-D's "when the boat comes in".*idea

Regards.
