E-M1 Free grip & MMF3 offer

I realise that some people have yet to receive their E-M1 from Olympus however, has anyone yet received their free grip and MMF3 having submitted their claim to the German address?

I sent my invoice and claim number off on 7th October, does anyone know how long it is likely to be before these begin to arrive in UK?

Thanks for any update or information.

Re: E-M1 Free grip & MMF3 offer

I am sure that I read a post yesterday from someone who had received theirs.
I am still awaiting a call from LCE in Bristol to say my EM1 is in.............

I think Ian posted something a couple of weeks ago saying these will not be fulfilled until mid November onwards going into December.

Thanks for the replies.

Dave, I'm sorry to her you've yet to receive your camera, I take it you ordered the 12-40 kit?

Andy, thanks again, I'll look for Ian's post.

Re: E-M1 Free grip & MMF3 offer

I picked up my EM-1 from LCE Cheltenham on 12 Oct, the shop told me the Olympus Rep said 28 days for delivery of grip so almost mid Nov.

Well balanced without even with 75mm so far.

So for folk wanting the 12-40 kit by the time we get it and then post off the required paperwork it might be beyond the newer deadline

Yes, I'd be glad to hear of progress as well as I sent my claim off on 11 October (taking the precaution of getting a proof of postage slip from the PO). On the bright side, at least it means that I have my E-M1.

Re: E-M1 Free grip & MMF3 offer

Out of curiosity....
I pre-ordered yesterday from the Olympus website. The free MMF3 was part of the order once I registered as an E-system user. However, no mention of the HLD7 grip.

Does this mean they've run out?
thx

Not sure if ordering direct from Olympus was a good thing.........

Re: E-M1 Free grip & MMF3 offer

I registered again as I could not find the paperwork or e-mail (still awaiting a camera ordered 16th september) the second registration shows only a free MMF 3 adapter so maybe there is a change. This could mean they are running out or the date is up for the battery grip offer?

The good news is I found the paperwork put safely in the print out from my order which shows grip and adapter!

You had to register before 30th September for the free grip.
