    Apparently my E-M1 has shipped.

    I am more than a little surprised!

    how surprising, because I just got a notice from B&H Today saying that it is backordered. and I have ordered one within 2 minutes of being able to.

    Bizarre. I ordered mine direct from Olympus because the Canadian retailers did not SKU it up until the next day.

    Well keep updating us. You might be the first person in North America (other than reviewers) to have one in your hands!

    Me too!

    I also just got the Olympus email. I should have it Friday. Will review it on my site www.photographicwanderings.com next week. Looking forward to shooting with it.

    The aus retailers I've talked to have said mid-Nov for reliable stock...

    But I don't want one anyway. My EM5 is fine. Really.

    I ordered mine about 2 hours after they became available and received the same notice from B&H today. I wonder if this is just an automated message that goes out after an item has been on back-order so many days.

    could be. Also B&H is closed for Jewish Holidays until Sunday it looks like.

    Got that same email today. I ordered it from 3 places, B&H, Amazon, and Olympus. But I'm from the US, it seems like those who got the shipping email are not?

    Nope, I'm in Maryland. I ordered from only one place. With my luck, I'd order from three places and they'd all ship the same day.

    I'm hoping for the same thing. XD I'm so tempted to pull the trigger, but I shouldn't spend that amount of money!

    Great, I just got notification that my EM1 has been shipped too (arriving Friday), right after returning from a major photo trip to Chicago shooting with the trusty EM5 :frown:

    Sigh, I thought I was going to take a break from photography this weekend :cool:

    Just got a call from Olympus to verify my shipping and billing addresses. Call came from Bethelham PA. Said both items are in stock and ill be getting them tomorrow. Promptly canceled my orders from Amazon and B&H. Ill be ordering the 12-40 from them now as well because their in stock date shows much earlier than the other two.

    I ordered the body with MMF adapter, unfortunately at this point we still don't know if Olympus US/Canada will offer kit or rebate for the 12-40mm lens so I didn't order everything at the same time to risk delays.
