    Way up there.
    Thread title says it all pretty much. I wanted to buy something from the official Olympus website and wondering how long I should expect to wait for my item. I am located in Canada, if that makes a difference.

    I have, but am in the US. Delivery time was about the same as ordering from one of the New York photo houses----a week to 10 days. My main issue is the sales tax negates some of the advantage of buying direct from Olympus.

    From memory take around 4 days to go from order confirmation to thing arriving, depending where you are.

    This can vary. Some times it's a few days and sometimes it's a few weeks.

    Olympus America often times ships two-day air at no extra charge, but this is not a guaranteed service. I do not know about how shipping is in Canada.

    Good luck,
