    Bring it on.

    I should be getting mine from Jessops tomorrow (so long as nothing untoward happens )

    So far, so very helpful for Jessops

    If the rest of the service is as good as their phone ordering service - kudos to Jessops. I always liked dealing with them before they went bust and the new set-up seems pretty responsive
    Jessops are still showing the 12-50 kits as in stock for home delivery or collection, if anyone is interested.

    No problem Colin. If you hadn't posted the link I wouldn't have checked it out.
    Cheers,

    My installation of Chrome translates it into some semblance of English, by itself, sorry!

    I followed the link posted and read through the recent comments and one customer posted the following.... Yikes! (hope it's not the same for the UK)
    "...
    For comparison’s sake, I ordered an E-M1, 12-40mm lens, and battery grip about an hour after Amazon U.S. started allowing pre-orders last month. Today I received an email with these expected delivery dates:E-M1 body — 18-22 OctoberHLD-7 battery grip — 21-25 November12-40mm lens — 12-16 December... "

    Sorry George but your link is to a Japanese language site.
    I think this might be what you were pointing to:

    http://www.43rumors.com/olympus-issu...part-5-review/

    A Google translation of the Japanese web page looks like this:

    October 4 2013
    Notice of going to send the E-M1 12-40mmF2.8 lens kit


    Regarding the Company plans to launch on 19 October 2013 in the "OM-D E-M1 12-40mmF2.8 lens kit", it has received the reservation more than expected, released initially after sufficient quantity that you can not afford is expected, there is a case to have time to deliver.
    I apologize from the bottom of my heart that We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers and have you wait.



    Doesn't say who issued the warning or any details on the extent of the delay. I certainly hope that Olympus will be able to fulfil the earliest of the orders placed. I can only hope I'm on that short list having placed my order on 12th September.
    I must admit to feeling a bit miffed now about the fact that my payment in full was taken on 30th September. Fortunately I have only been charged for one order despite my original cancelled order still showing in my account.
    When I did contact Olympus support they were very friendly and helpful and they did say they work Monday to Friday. So we won't be getting anything from them over the weekend.

    What I do find sad is for Olympus to be so overwhelmed with orders to the point where demand has outstripped supply they have seriously misjudged their popularity in the market and what people are prepared to pay for.

    So the deadline to watch for the 12-40 kit release is now 19th October.
    Happy days!

    Steve
