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.
Amazon US has some discounted E-P1 (via Calumet Photo):
– Olympus E-P1 Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (Silver Body/Black Lens) for $749.99! That’s -$50.
