    There was a comment in one of the OM-D threads about those people
    who had the opportunity to call Olympus, had spoken to someone named "Elizabeth".
    Since so many people called Olympus and everyone spoke to Elizabeth,
    everyone thought it was a name they used and that Elizabeth must not exist.

    I called Olympus today to check the status of my order because my Paypal Authorization had expired.
    My order was confirmed and they are still waiting for my camera allocation to ship my order.
    They then put me through to the Credit Department to speak to someone about the authorization.
    This is where I got to speak to Elizabeth.
    She was very pleasant to speak to, and very helpful.

    I mentioned to Elizabeth about the Micro 4/3 User Group comment and she laughed.
    There is only one Elizabeth, and she is making sure we all get our orders shipped out complete.

    Thanks Elizabeth !!

    Haven't been waiting on an E-M5, but it's a great story, nevertheless. It was beginning to think that Elzabeth was like "Peggy" from the Discover Card TV commercials.

    I've talked to the Olympus store customer support people a couple of times (had to exchange a 45mm awhile back) and they were all helpful, nice, and patient.

    I talked to at LEAST three separate Elizabeths and one had a southern accent and was somewhere other than their Bethlehem office. The other two could have been the same person, but in that case Elizabeth #1 got mighty involved in the illusion of transferring me to Elizabeth #2! And I think it was my suggestion, based on this experience...

    I, of course, cancelled all of my Oly pre-orders and then ended up buying one from B&H when they stuck one in my face ANYway! So THERE Elizabeth!
