    Just picked up one for myself; have been waiting for new inventory for weeks! Great deal on this lens. I had a 5% discount coupon for filling out an Olympus feedback form, so saved an additional $32. Sales tax was $34.96 (I'm in DC), but that is still a great deal when considering the $1000 retail price.

    They sell out fast! Read through this thread (link below); it gives some helpful tips on how to monitor for this or any web items. I used this to alert me when the 12-40 was back in stock @ outlet.

    For anyone who ordered this lens while in stock; it seems that at least some of us are dealing with a "back order" issue. I purchased the lens and received a follow-up order confirmation, stating that the lens would ship out that day or the next. I was then told by a customer rep this morning that the lens is on back-order, and won't ship to me until they have more inventory (which according to her could be 3 weeks or more). Apparently they don't notify you if your item is back-ordered either - you have to call and ask to receive that information:)

    So heads up to you if you're waiting for this lens to arrive... you may be waiting a while.

    I'm in a similar situation. My online account says the order is "complete" but hasn't shipped. My credit card info showed a pending charge immediately after I placed the order on 11/18 until this morning, but that is gone now.
