    Dan's in Allentown has gotten a number of silver kits out to people who have preordered.

    If Dans in Allentown has EM5 cameras then B&H has them sitting gathering dust in their warehouse. Or maybe they don't even take deliveries during Passover.

    I think they will take care of their customers as they allways do. We should respect their religious closings without mocking. It is one of the best online stores of the world, reliable and with a good reputation. I think we can wait this one or two day more for our camera.

    And by gawd if you ever get to go to the store itself it's unbelievable. Worth the trip if you're within 4 hours. I can get there in 90 minutes, park in their free 60 minute lot, shop for an hour and get home before the wife realizes I took the afternoon off of work...

    :wink:

    Or a month or more - I just noticed the E-M5 with the 14-42mm kit lens configuration is backordered at Adorama with no estimated delivery date.

    I'm like an hour and a half away from Allentown, makes me wonder if it would have been better preordering locally.

    Thanks to the OP, I called Dan's Camera shop in Allentown this morning and found out that they had one EM-5 silver kit in stock. I asked them to hold it while I drove about an hour to the shop to pick it up. As soon as I got home, I opened the box to find that there's only about 5 minutes of battery life. Not much time to play at all! So right now I'm charging the battery while reading the manual and anxiously waiting to go out and play with my new toy. I'll check in later.

    No, I preordered from Amazon on February 8th and still haven't heard a word from them. I just got lucky that Dan's had one available.

    I'm just ribbing you. For those who did not preorder but want one ... take heart. There will be many as a LOT of us have preordered from different sources and will be canceling the tardy supplier. Gotta be quick like Steve here though. :thumbup:

    I didn't pre-order but want one badly, though i decided to wait on the fence and see the early reports, which are trickling in..

    so far the negatives are chipping paint and a mysterious hum....

    my thoughts are, the chipping paint is somewhat of a drag but, I love brand new cars, and when you use them, damage happens, they never stay pristine... so I can live with paint chips...

    and as for the hum, If the OMD gives me outstanding image quality, I could care less if it makes a farting sound everytime I press the shutter...
