    I got mine with a 5% discount from Amazon (and it was before they started charging sales tax in my state) so I think I'll just wait -- 45usd of savings is worth it. (Besides, I've already waited a month and they told me I'd get it by 2nd week of October).

    But yes, this will go out of stock soon.

    In much the same way, as much as I envy those who ordered from Olympus USA and already have their 60mm macro, the 30usd sales tax savings is worth waiting just a bit longer.

    I'm surprised this is still in stock! Ordered mine the moment I saw it in stock today, before posting this thread :p

    If anyone needs convincing, head over to the sample image thread for this lens ;).

    Based on what someone said about how many lenses ********** got this time I suspect this round of deliveries is much larger than the last couple. So maybe it is just going to be in stock everywhere now. B&H had a huge pre-order list, so if they cleared that they must have got a whole bunch of lenses.

    Thank you Amin. I placed the order thru the link. B&H called me later to confirm the order. Everything is cool.

    I ordered mine, yesterday. Only thing is, I will be away next week and won't get to use it immediately when it arrives!
    :(

    This is the first time I've ever posted something like "Act Fast" or "This won't last" and been wrong about it :redface:. My B&H contact said this was an "act fast" situation, and he's usually right about these things!

    Perhaps he wanted us to act fast so September and third quarter earnings would be as strong as possible...

    Lol, that goes without saying, but he knows if he tells me to act fast when there's no need to act fast, it'll go like the boy who cried wolf. I'm not looking to trick anyone into pulling the trigger before they're ready!

    He probably based his recommendation on the crazy strong demand they encountered for some other lenses; the PL 25 f/1.4 comes to mind.

    Thanks to Amin for the heads up. I was able to snag the 75mm f/1.8 from B&H and the new 60mm f/2.8 macro from **********, both over the weekend.

    Am new to mirrorless, but I am way in luv with the OMD. Just awesome system and with these 2 additions I am pretty complete up 75mm. Now were is a M4/3 Oly 150 f/2.8?

    There are still 4 available at Adorama. I paid 3.12usd for USPS priority shipping to get it by Friday. Damn Amazon taxes.

    I had a 5% discount from them and had been patiently waiting to get my lens for a month now. I ordered in August before PA started charging Amazon sales tax. Turns out sales tax is charged at the time of shipping, not when it was ordered. Good thing I found out today and not 2 weeks later.

    OM-D, P7-14, mZD12, PL25, mZD75, anxiously waiting for my mZD60 macro
