    To anyone wondering....I wrote to Olympus customer service asking when they thought the 75 1.8 would be available for purchase in the US. They said they hope to have it available by the end of August.

    Amazon in UK has been stating it would be released on July 31st, this morning it changed to 'dispatched in 3 to 5 weeks' :mad:

    Amazon US says they expect delivery starting Aug 24th, sounds like that may not be too far off the mark for an estimate.

    I put in my order about July 15th, back when B&H was saying it would arrive on the 20th. I'd certainly like to get mine by mid-August. Apparently it's worth a month's wait, but I'm impatient! :smile:

    I got mine yesterday at a local photo dealer in Koblenz, Germany. However, 949€ hurts.

    I got mine one week a go and I'm happy as can be. It's simply unbelievable.

    Still waiting.

    I'm still waiting for my m.zuiko 75mm 1.8 lens. I ordered it from Adorama in June. I'm getting pretty frustrated. Was doing a little street shooting today with the 12-50 and really was hankering for shorter DOF to isolate a few subjects that I was trying to shoot from about 20-30 feet. I should have used my 45mm I guess.

    FWIW, I ordered mine from Amazon July 19th and it finally shipped September 10th. I don't know if that says anything relative to Adorama or other shops though, since these things seem hit and miss with various products/manafacturers.

    Guess I should give Adorama a call. Maybe something is screwed up with my order.
