    Hi all,

    I've got a Pro kit on order with Michaels in Melbourne. Wondering if anyone has gotten a kit this week or knows of any available? I've been told they are coming this week but no sign of any yet. Wondering if Olympus (or Michaels for that matter) are telling fibs. Teds said no stock till December, possibly after Christmas - eek.

    I've sold my DSLR kit and am sooooo looking forward to getting my hands on one!

    I collected my E-M1 and 12-40 today from DigiDirect in Elizabeth street. I pre-ordered mine when Olympus was doing promotions at Michaels and DigiDirect - early October maybe?

    DigiDirect hasn't fulfilled all the pre-orders yet, so December may be the expectation for walk-in buyers.

    I picked up my EM1 pro kit from Michaels last week which had been preordered at the digital photo show in Melbourne.

    I got mine from DigiDirect on October 25. It was body only and ordered straight after the announcement.

    I'm still waiting for Capture 1 support, unfortunately. For tripod users, the RRS L plate is available.

    Mine has arrived - about 5 days later than the expected delivery time from them, but all good :2thumbs:

    My store in Launceston had one in the flesh last week and I think they're keeping it as a demo. Talking to a mate who works in store it sounds like they've had a ton of interest and a lot of people placing pre-orders (including several of the staff...).

    To be honest I was surprised to see one in Tasmania at all...

    I received the EM ! body on the 21st October. It is worth waiting for, be patient :smile:
    My free grip from Olympus arrived yesterday, still waiting to give it a good try out.
