Possible UK availability date?

Don't know how accurate they are, but Amazon UK are listing the OM-D as available from 1st April. Of course, it could be a joke.....

Amazon Amazon



EDIT I note that Olympus now have the claim forms for the free grip. Cameras must be purchased by 30th April.

Eeeeh - I'm so excited I could buy my own beer!

Lucky you. Not long to wait.

I see from 'another place' that if you pre-order at Focus on Imaging you receive free:
Grip (rrp £230)
Grip Strap (£30)
Case (£100)
Battery (£60)

That sounds like quite a generous offer.

It is indeed a great offer. But to travel all the way down to Brum from Scotland would cost more than the extra £190 of savings. Pity all the special offers are "down south"!
