    I placed a pre-order about a month ago, and was told to expect the lens in "late October". It's late October. Anyone got one yet?

    I haven't ordered one yet but plan to. I see that the ZY Optics site no longer has it listed as a pre-order item but instead has the "lead" time as two weeks.

    mine came in the mail yesterday. I ordered it nearly as soon as it was announced. So I'd guess you'll be seeing yours within a few days.

    I'm waiting to win the mu-43 giveaway contest. As soon as I win, I'll chime in with my opinion! :D:p;)

    Almost 180 entries now plus the last minute ones to come. You are going to disappoint a lot of people!

    I almost forget to participate to the contest;)
    However, I don't understand how the link is made between the post and the "like" on the facebook page, so maybe I will not qualify...

    You have to be a member of FaceBook. Click on the link that Amin provided and it will take you to the Mu4/3 page. In the upper part of the page, a little to the right you will see an icon that says "Like", simply click there and you are done.

    Yes but how does Amin would make the link between the facebook account that liked the facebook page, and the mu-43forum account?

    That's all well and good, but Amin never made it clear on how he was going to link a mu-43.com account with a Facebook account to verify that both things were done.

    I think it's fairly simple. He draws a winner (probably using a random number generator). That numbered post is the winner, after he verifies that the mu43 user has liked the facebook post. Even if you have a different user name, presumably if one wins the lens, they will find a way to verify that they are who they claim to be on facebook.

    Not that anyone needs to spend any time worrying about HOW it will happen. Because I am going to win it :yahoo:

    you guys just reminded me to join that contest, funny if I win that, because the lens will need to be shipped from another district in my city to Boston, and then back:laugh1:
