    Just received notification from B&H that my order shipped. Don't remember exactly when I placed the preorder but it was within the first couple days of the option appearing on their site.
    Now have to decide whether to return it or wait for my Olympus America order placed during the (mistaken?) price reduction.

    I was going to share the discount with another forum member who committed to buying the mistaken price reduction one from Olympus when it's delivered. Meaning I'll get the lens early with still some discount and someone else who missed out on preorders and that crazy sale will also get a slightly discounted lens. It's just that I've been very excited about getting this lens and want it before Xmas. Win-win for everyone.

    Is there a discount being offered on this lens? I never seen it.

    There was a short-lived erratic Godsend of a sale this past weekend for a few hours. It's since been corrected but Olympus is honoring all sales that went through.

    I have a confirmed order from that crazy sale for $369. But no word on a shipping date. Fortunately, I'm not in a hurry for it - most of my shooting over the holidays will be family shots with the 45 and 75 and some with the Fuji. But I'd kind of like to have some idea of when to expect it.

    Well you guys are lucky. Hopefully Olympus will have another sale sometime soon. Just don't know how long I can hold out. Two days after I bought my 40-140 Olympus had a $100 rebate offer. Just my luck.

    The "Sale" was a mistake where they apparently listed a bunch of stuff at wholesale prices rather than retail. Don't think it is likely to happen again unless by another mistake. But you can always hope.

    I hate all of you lucky sods who got in on that deal :biggrin:

    Meanwhile my preorder from Adorama has shipped and will be here Friday! Can't complain too much about the price since I used a $50 prepaid code I got from another Adorama purchase. Man, I'm giddy right now. This is the lens I've been waiting for to complete my core lens lineup.

    Do you guys remember the date you preordered from bh? I ordered mine on the 15th of nov and haven't received any notifications. I believe that was the day the preorder went live. Really dissappointed that this isn't being received by Xmas.

    I ordered mine that same day, and received it this past friday with UPS 3-Day. They've sent me emails since dec about that they were expecting stock that had not been received. You might want to call them?

    Yea I ordered mine with 2 day air shipping. I've been calling them and emailing them and they give me some auto reply saying they haven't received anything yet. My first experience with them on a preorder basis. Will be sure to never do that again with them. What upsets me even more is that I've been charged since the 15th of nov which they said if you pay through PayPal they charge you right away.

    FWIW, the listing on Adorama now says.

    "Please Note! This Item is on the way to our warehouse and is expected in a few days."

    Me, I'm still waiting for my order from Amazon to ship so I can stop using PL25.

    FWIW, the lens appears to be in stock over at Adorama. I'm tempted to cancel my order with Amazon and just order one from Adorama.
