The black body only showed up in-stock on Arlington Camera's website last night, so I jumped on it while I could. I'm going to call them this morning and confirm there's one with my name on it. I certainly hope it's so.....the site definitely took my money . They're open tonight until 7pm and I'll drive over and pick it up, assuming the site was accurate and it's there.

There's always the chance it might not be so, but it sure looks "good".

I bet you were chuckling as you wrote that, huh!

I just checked their site and the in-stock option on the body-only is now off, so I MAY have nabbed the only one there. We'll see shortly after 10am....

Me too. First thing I'ma gonna do is find myself a ticket as close to the field as possible at a Texas Rangers MLB game and take the 75-300 M. Zuiko. Great high ISO performance, 9 frames per second. OK, I'm there...

Wednesday evening, June 27 vs. Detroit. Section 35, row 12.

Now, if the post on AC's website was just a tease, I guess I'll be taking the E-P3 instead...

It would be interesting to know just how many OM-D M5s were sold so far. No one seems to keep them in stock for very long.
