It is really difficoult to keep an eye on all shops in all the different 27(???) european countries.
But I have something for you from ebay.
A very good UK reseller has 4 Olympus PEN E-P1 Digital Camera with 14-42mm lens in stock. Take the chance if you want to get the E-P1 now!
Officially Olympus has no MicroFourThirds lens roadmap. It will depend from the demand of the people what kind of lenses they will make as first.
That’s why 43rumors wants to start a very serious poll. We want that YOU choose the future Olympus MFT lenses!
1) You can select a maximum of three primes. On some focal lenghts you can choose between getting a highly portable tiny lens or a little bigger fast lens.
2) You can vote one single time only. Your IP-address will be stored. We can delete your vote if you want to redo the voting.
3) Feel free to add some possible focal lenght by commenting this post. I will quickly add your proposed lens as option inside the poll.
4) The results will be sent directly to Olympus Japan!
Please invite everyone to vote! More we are more Olympus will take us seriously!!!
UPDATE: We added the 7mm, 20mm and 25mm (2.0 or above) lenses. Because they have been recently added we will apply a multiplying factor.
UPDATE2: This poll will stay on the top of the 43rumors page at least until monday. Our first goal is to reach 1.000 unique votes. More we are and more Olympus will have to listen to us!
UPDATE3: 1.000 voters reached. Next target is 1.500 voters.
UPDATE4: Zoom poll will follow after finishing the prime poll.
UPDATE5: Should we send the list to Panasonic too?
Steve reviewed the E-P1. To be fair it looks more like a preview. I hope dpreview will publish the E-P1 review soon.
In summary: More and more worldwide shops are having the silver E-P1 with the 14-42mm in stock. Amazon is shipping the silver E-P1 and you should receive the cameras next week.
I will get my white E-P1 with 17mm lens at the end of the next week :)
