Let's hope you're correct

I'm trying to remember the last time I ordered from Olympus. Did I receive notice of shipment? Not sure tbh.

Re: It's on its way!

I have now checked with Olympus...apparently supplies are indeed reaching the UK, and NO we will not receive notice of shipment...the parcel will just arrive!

I was told by the end of this week, or early next week.

New camera and fibre broadband here in quick succession...so Christmas has come early

Re: It's on its way!

So who will be first with a "It's here!" posting

Desperately hoping the "free" mmf-3 is included in the same shipment.

Re: It's on its way!

Need a decent camera for next week and it looks like I will be disappointed! C'mon Olympus...a wee bit of communication would be good!!

Bodies and kits with the 12-50 should be shipping at the same time. I don't think there's a shortage of that lens.

No, I was told yesterday that the first batch was very small and I certainly wouldn't be in it (unless dozens of people cancelled!). They may be getting another batch next week. But they won't know until a day or so before they arrive.

Re: It's on its way!

So, by the time I get mine, I expect a detailed list of "best configuration settings" from all you lucky early recipients!
