    Anyone know any online sellers with the 75mm in stock?

    Only for overpriced third parties unfortunately. They still haven't filled all their preorders.

    Yeah tell me about it :(

    Mine is coming up pretty close on the 60 day pre-order limit now, just hoping they don't cancel the order before it ships!

    I bought mine 2 days ago at my local Brick N' Mortar store......(Which I must say that Olympus does a great job at not forgetting about the small businesses) :smile:

    Probably their websites are just wrong. Unique Photo has been saying in stock for months and they haven't shipped a single lens I don't think.

    Precision camera is slow to update, but I think they did have stock briefly recently because they went from no orders taken to "in stock" a few days ago. They did a similar thing with the batch a few weeks ago.

    Berger Bros was listed as preorder for a long time but changed to stock a few days ago. I suspect same story as Precision, slow to update the web site. Most of these places only got a few lenses and after filling preorders probably went out of stock in one business day. For reference, B&H which had well over 70 pre-orders and does massive amounts of business only got 20 lenses in the batch last week. Most stores were getting three to six.

    I got mine from ********** and they sold their six lenses within a few hours of someone posting a stock tip on DPR.

    Anyway - to the OP, sorry for the bad lead on those two sites. I kind of suspected they might be out of stock again, but they were the only places I knew of that almost certainly had recently gotten stock in the past few days and might have had some...
