They also have 9-18 in stock for $399.
Its not the M43 version sadly.
Well if it still costs much less than the µ4/3 version, I wouldn't mind getting one if I owned one of the OM-D model cameras. I am not bothered by using a little larger lens, I tend to use mostly Legacy glass anyway.I totally missed that part. I was too excited to see 9-18 there, and ordered one along with 12-40. Thank you for the heads up.
WTH....how could you guys order it AFTER I did, and be getting it sooner?I did exactly the same thing as zapatista and had the same result! I get mine on Thursday!
That doesn't make sense at all. I couldn't even imagine what order they process things in then. I completed my order on Monday at 1:17 pm eastern.WTH....how could you guys order it AFTER I did, and be getting it sooner?
Ay Caramba....sometimes Oly...sometimes!
For me when I ordered it Monday (around noon Eastern) it showed "out of stock" but let me put it into my cart with no issue, and was able to process the order. Still no shipping notification. I seriously wonder what order they process these things.....
I was originally going to order the 12-40 from a Japanese vendor ( at least 140 off retail including not having to pay for shipping or taxes to the US), a friend of mine got his from them and it's worked out great, but when you see the Refurbs pop up on the Oly site, it's time to pull the trigger. Even if your spouse will raise cain later.....it's worth it, right?!
The whole system is very strange. When I ordered mine, I got a call asking to confirm my mailing address, followed by an e-mail telling me my order had been cancelled, followed by a shipping notice. But it arrived in the end, so I guess one can't complain too much.Mine shipped today. I was quite surprised.
Hey darla from what I had heard I expected it to get cancelled. I agree it is weird.The whole system is very strange. When I ordered mine, I got a call asking to confirm my mailing address, followed by an e-mail telling me my order had been cancelled, followed by a shipping notice. But it arrived in the end, so I guess one can't complain too much.
Will the 12-40 be supplanting your 12-60?
They are already out of stock! I have been watching daily, and was unable to look this afternoon. It was not there this morning. Very frustrating.The 12-40 just became available again for those still looking for a copy, successfully placed an order...fingers crossed! :smile:
