We Haven't Heard Anything on How Many Preorders

    Refresh my memory. At what stage in the process do we usually hear something when a highly anticipated camera experiences a lot of preorders?

    Is there a reason a company would hold this info back? Or does it always come later? Like after the preordered units are delivered?

    I read a post somewhere than the OM-D had more pre-orders than any other Olympus camera ever. I'm not sure how meaningful that is, though. A lot of people on various forums seem to have pre-ordered from 2 or even 3 different stores, planning to take the first order shipped and then cancel the others.

    If three ship on the same day, I hope they have big credit limits! :eek:

    They'll make a profit selling the extra ones on ebay. :cool:

    I'm already mentally composing my ad: Olympus EM5 OMD - New - Unboxed - No Paint Problems.
