    Where do you see Olympus statement about November availability?

    I checked with B&H today and the guy confirmed it should be available around 4th Oct as planned. Based on different dates published on sites from Amazon/B&H, looks like there may be a different delivery date for different dealers.

    B&H lists October 4th, Amazon lists October 14th, Olympus lists early October. Ordered from all 3, will keep the one that ships first, will cancel the other 2.

    After ordering on the 11th Sept it stated the following:

If we anticipate a delay in delivering the product to you, we will notify you by email of the estimated delivery date (s). We will give you the option to continue with your order or request a full refund.

    1st week of October for beginning arrivals of stock on the EM1 body only. The lens is supposed to follow availability no earlier than late November, early December. FORGET about kit as they are NOT offered any further at this time. There is NO projected availability time frame for them so if anyone is telling you otherwise they are leading you on. It's NOT gonna happen. Olympus IS however offering a $200 rebate to those that order the body and 12-40 lens at the same time to defray the pain I suppose. This is directly from my dealer who is quite reputable and has delivered in the past for me. (********** NY).

    I spoke with an Olympus representative at the e-m1 launch at a local dealer here in Finland. He said that there is a good number of bodies and kits with the 12-40 lens that will be available in early October. The 12-40 lens alone will be available later.
