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.
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.

When I placed my order for the VF-4 and 75/1.8 lens hood, I got the same email because of the VF-4 was back-ordered.

Forgot it for a while, and then they shipped within a few days.

The E-PM2 that I purchased a week ago still has not been shipped. And will not be shipped for another two to three weeks. So I canceled the Olympus order and jumped ship to Adorama. I'm getting the same EPM2 package brand new for only $25 more.

Well darn that took a long time. Ordered 3/22/14. Received 4/10/14.

Although in a refurb box the lens appears to be brand new.

Waiting for a reasonably priced wide zoom, like the 9-18mm to show up on the Refurb page...
The 9-18 does show up from time to time. The sale wiped out any inventory they had, but I'd imagine it will show up again.

Waiting for the EM10 to show up. Could be a long wait I supposed.
You and me both. Although I'll probably wait for another 20% off sale after it gets there. And same on the 25mm f/1.8 lens.
