    Oly's site says "free shipping on any order that includes a camera or a lens"

    Are they REALLY just calling this a body cap to charge shipping? I'll wait for B&H pre-order.

    Heh- yes, they (at least Olympus Japan- Oly USA does things weird) consider it a "accessory."

    ... and I just totally preordered it.

    Yes, my order went through with no problem, I've received a confirming email.

    What problem are you having with the site?

    Regards,

    I usually don't do pre-orders but I might on this one. I will wait until B and H has it listed however.

    What a pain amazon won't ship to Australia, have to wait for bh or wait for eBay dealers to get stock, 49.95 is a bit of a bargain

    If they're calling it a body cap I'd like to see one in every camera box! Good pricing, but I'm gonna wait until they are widely available. If you google the product number Adorama has it for pre-order already, they have it priced at $59.99 with free shipping, so good deal from Olympus (Adorama will likely lower the $ though).

    My "place order" button was grey out, and the error message was "The ship to city, state, zip that you entered is incorrect."

    I live in MA, and I could not find anything wrong with my address. very strange....

    I get that sometimes because I live in St. Petersburg, FL. Olympus doesn't like the abbreviation, and makes me input "Saint Petersburg". Could something like that apply to you too?

    I used "Stoughton, Massachusetts", but still had this error. I might have to order from somewhere else.

    I had the same error and my town is a six letter common word, pretty hard to screw up! I'm waiting on this one anyway, it'll be $40 bucks somewhere eventually.

    Strange. I'm afraid I don't have any ideas on resolving this issue, the website gave me no such problems.

    :confused:
