    For most cameras and lenses which get announced, Amazon and Adorama take pre-orders, while B&H Photo does not. This evening I received a call from our B&H contact who informed me that they were accepting pre-orders for the new Olympus products starting with the E-P3 and 12mm f/2 lens. He explained that they were making this exception because they knew they would be receiving a high volume supply from Olympus and felt confident that they would be able to fulfill the pre-orders received.

    The E-P3 kits are now open for pre-order on the B&H Photo Video website. Direct links:

    Now they got me to thinking about upgrading but the 12500 ISO is pretty rough.

    I think 12500 will be next to useless. I did preorder the E-P3 and a Leica 25mm 1.4

    I'm a little annoyed as I either did not notice this when I pre-ordered the E-P3 from BHPhoto or they changed the wording later... but they will charge your credit card when you pre-order, NOT when it ships.

    I'm sticking to Adorama next time.

    I think that is standard practice with B&H for pre-orders. Then again, they usually only list it for pre-orders a couple days before the item actually ships.
