    This is the first time EVER that I've gotten a best buy deal that was available for local pick up! Normally the closest one is 800+ miles away.

    I wonder if is is some sort of computer error or did they just receive a huge shipment of lenses? Seems odd since Best Buy does not carry mu43 cameras any more for them to get a big supply in of lenses when they are clearancing everything. Every Best Buy around me is showing in stock. Will be curious if I actually ever get a pickup email.

    Same here...I was able to get one for pickup from a Best Buy less than 15 miles from my house.

    I'm sure something will go wrong. :)

    I'm calling the store right now. This has to be a glitch. Every Best Buy in the vicinity of Los Angeles has the lens in stock?!? Considering the last time I was at BB near my place last week, I didn't even see an E-PM or GF camera.

    Just called my local BB, and this lens is listed as a deleted item. Probably a glitch.

    FAIL!!!

    I just recieved a note that my order was cancelled. It was available at the three local best buys near my house. I ordered from another one and it then failed a little later. I called bestbuy.

    This is a "deleted" item they told me and they could not explain why it is listed for sale.

    Bottom line, lens is not available, at least anywhere near Washington, DC. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thanks Best Buy, your computer system is not worth a !$&@!!!

    I've had them do that to me before, list something at a great price that wasn't actually in stock at the store. Their inventory system at the store level seems pretty bad.

    I just got an email that mine was not available at my selected store. They said I can to get it from a different location if I can find it at another store. How lame is that? THey don't know their own inventory?

    Oh well...my expectations were low even as I placed the order.
