Olympus sometimes oversells refurbs during their sales. Probably a poor inventory system, or a retail end that doesn't reserve an item while it is someone's cart.Placed my order 3/22/14. Wondered where things stood and got this back:
"We do apologize but this lens is currently on back order, we do hope to be able to ship it in the next 1-2 weeks."
Hope is not a strategy IMHO.
