    Discontinued. Sounds crazy, I have bin waiting for it for so long. If this was April 1st I would laugh. But my email was from them. I am sad.

    I can only hope this was a error from B and H but not going to hold my breath, maybe there was a issue with it and they decided it could not be released
    who knows.

    I just went to the site and the 300mm pro lens is no longer there so must be true.
    All I can say is POOP.

    Yep, got the same email and came here to post about. Looks like you beat me to it. Email said it was "discontinued" - wonder what exactly that means.

    Seems more likely it's a sku change. Did the original B&H item specific OIS? Maybe the spec has changed so an new entry will be created.

    Let's hope they don't know something disappointing.

    They discontinue the item before replacing it with a new one before it's released, this has happened with almost every lens to date.

    The good new is that B&H got official word of the new lens release. It looks like it will be coming in January.

    I just saw a beautiful ad in my just arrived Outdoor Photography magazine with the 300 f/4 in the ad. It is coming.

    The Oly ads are running in several photo mags...talking about how you can get to the equivalent of 840mm on a 35mm by using the 300mm Pro and the TC. Note only B&H evidently sent out the misleading notice. I have not seen anyone saying they got such a note from the Olympus store, Adorama, Amazon, or other company.

    That's because no one else had listed this lens on their website, other than B&H.
