Anybody else still not get their 15mm f8 from Olympus yet?
So I'm wondering if maybe something went wrong with my order, since I ordered the body cap lens from Olympus on the 19th of September, and have yet to get any notice of shipment or something of the sort from Olympus.
Online, the order status reads as "complete", and has said so for months now. Anybody know what may be going on?

Me too--still no show. I guess I've learned my lesson, and won't be 'pre-ordering' anything soon. Seems I could have gotten it a lot faster from B&H, or any other retail store.

Mine shows as "completed" but I've not received it. I read (somewhere on this forum, I think) that early December was a projected date.
Currently Amazon, B&H, and Adorama all show "out of stock".
It will be delivered...when .
The good news, for me, is that it's sort of a "curiosity" lens and not something that I need every day. I'm wondering if Olympus is completing orders in their Asian and European markets before the North American market.

Ahh good idea. They have not yet. So at least it wasn't delivered to the wrong place, lol. Thanks!

Yeah, sighs. Olympus seems to be very sporadic with their pre-orders. Sometimes they randomly ship early, others they take forever.

I know it's not exactly the most ideal landscape lens, but most of my wide shots are in the daytime when it can be most useful.

Yup me too. I ordered mine for Olympus USA.
When I looked into it, Olympus said something like "orders will be shipped by the end of the year." Downer.

The good news are that, with their "first come, first served" policy, you are going to have the lens cap before everybody else... hopefully before Christmas.

I'm surprise to hearing it not out yet. I had a go with it on my OMD in a camera shop on Poland a few weeks a go, also could order it on eBay UK. I was interest on the lens too, love the thinness of it. But was wondering is these any real reason to pick this over the Pan 14mm f2.5, apart from the fact this is thinner?

Ordered mine in September as well. Still haven't received it. Order is also marked as complete. Oh, well.

Finally, the size difference is actually significant for some. Although it doesn't apply to me specifically, with my G3 and its protruding EVF, it makes several of the smaller bodies legitimately pocketable.
To me it's a lens with character. And it's cheap. I like that =P
