    Anyone know if they stand a better chance of receiving their OM-D's before April 15 if they pre-order from Olympus America, Amazon, etc. instead of the Jewish camera stores?

    It won't affect B&H and I doubt it would Adorama either. They are not just not shipping they are not taking orders, so there is no back log when they return. I have done business with B and H for years and although they take off for Passover they are always back on the ball once it is over. I have not dealt with Adorama as much but they are very well respected and I doubt they would let things slip out of their control.

    If the cameras arrive at shops between April 6 and 15, they won't ship until the 15th. Whereas from other places, they'll likely ship whenever they get them. So, if the camera is widely available before April 15th, the odds are ordering from B&H or Adorama WILL delay when you'd get the camera relative to other shops. If it arrives by the 3rd or 4th, or after the 15th, then it shouldn't make any difference, but if the cameras hit the shops around the 5th ot 6th or 7th, then, yeah, a B&H or Adorama order is gonna cost you a week to 10 days in terms of when you end up with the camera in your hands.

    I cancelled a B&H pre-order and moved it over to the Olympus online shop because of this. Ordinarily I wouldn't care about a week or so but this April I'm basically on a shooting vacation all month, so a week really matters and I'd like to get the camera as soon as possible. So if there's a chance it could delay getting the camera, it was worth the switch to me.
