You had me going for a moment there
Hmm, really? I'll pass and save myself a fair bit of cash in that case... thank goodness you told me as I can just imagine the head-pounding-on-wall I would have given myself had it bought it with no cashback....

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

Yes, i saw that. As you say, that price is without tax etc, plus you can't qualify for the free grip. Makes you wonder if they've been putting in spurious pre-orders, or if it in fact exists yet.

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

Hi

Had an email reply from SRS yesterday who say that their stock is due on April 17th and they will be allocating stock to pre-orders shortly.

Hopefully my February 6th order should be somewhere near the top!

Hi Mark

Just checked again and my order was the 8th as well so should expect it around the same time as yourself.

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

It'll be interesting to see how quickly the various suppliers get them out to us. We need a 'Got it!' thread.

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

Just spoken to SRS, who said that initial stocks were 3rd week in April, and that I was no.1 on the list so I will definitely (so they say) be getting one. Apparently though there's no prize for being in pole position.

What's the position with spare batteries? Have you asked SRS?

The chap I spoke to was unaware that the batteries were different. Obviously they will be stocking them in due course, but he didn't know if they would have them in immediately.

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

I keep wondering how much use the battery grip will be initially as I have to fork out for an MMF-3 and look to whether I am going to have to save up for an MFT lens. Having to cough up another 120 for two extra BLN-1s to go in the grip will be a low priority, especially if they are hard to come by!

Good news! You only have to fork out for one extra battery! The grip only takes one.

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

Guys & Gals, I have decided NOT to take my OM-D - but I am not cancelling the order - I shall leave it on HOLD so if SOMEONE HERE wants one sooner than their place in a Queue - they can have mine

I am with Park and high up the list

As soon as they confirm estimated Stock date I shall post here

Re: OM-D E-M5 Delivery Date - Oh Dear!

E-M5s are apparently hitting stores imminently. I was told that some stores might even get first stocks today or tomorrow. But the pre-orders will take several batches to satisfy though.
