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

    Amazon goes in and out of stock regularly.

    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...
