    just wanted to ask to see if anyone has received their OMD from Amazon US at all.... I cancelled my pre-order for a silver body but doubt that up to this point, would've received it yet anyway..... Anyone?

    Mine shipped today

    I had the black body and 12-50 lens kit on order since it was announced.

    Yesterday a vendor (via Amazon) had the body with the 14-42 kit in stock. I canceled the first one and ordered the new one. It was priced $100 over list, but that is still less than the kit with weather sealed lens.

    The kit lens, regardless of which one, is of little interest to me. It would be nice to have a total weather sealed system, but I can wait for a weather sealed prime.

    Just got the shipping notice. It will arrive next week!

    Actually it could've been Amazon...You know there was about 25 14-42 kits that were up for a few hours....

    As I was debating to buy the last one around 8AM someone got it... Oh well... My 12-50mm is supposedly shipping soon...

    No, it was Amazon. They had something like 20 of the black 14-42 kits in stock, I had really wanted the 12-50 kit but jumped on the stock one.

    Placed my order for the silver kit on April 5 - nothing. Placed an order for the black kit on April 24 - will receive on Tuesday. The black kit is from Amazon and didn't have to pay $100 over the asking price.

    I'm just happy this roller coaster ride is finally over.

    I kinda ran out of money :frown:

    I bought the X-Pro1 with the 35/1.4 lens & I am really amazed with the camera! I'm not even shooting in RAW yet, just the JPEGs alone are so much better than what I get from the E-PL2!


    I know the OMD has a way better + newer sensor than the E-PL2, &
    I love Micro Four Thirds and will not abandon it, but I think saving up for the upcoming 75/1.8 lens will be a better use of my money as of right now..

    The life of a poor college student :frown:

    Just as an update, I've received notice from amazon that my black OMD with 14-42 lens shipped out last night. This wasn't my original pre-order, mind you, since I cancelled my silver body pre-order a week ago. This order was placed yesterday afternoon. So it seems that Amazon has been getting the 14-42 kits as opposed to the others. Anyone else get theirs yet?
