Olympus E-P2 availability informations and E-P1 deals

I collected some E-P2 availability infos:

In US and EUROPE the official availability is planned for early January. The informations we received do say that Olympus is trying to anticipate the E-P2 sales on mid-December. I just received an email from Australia where Olympus confirmed that they will have the first E-P2 ready for sale on December 15.

And the E-P2 firmware 1.0 is almost ready.

E-P2 preorder list (simply click on the shop name and you will land on the E-P2 camera page):
