The H&B Digital web site currently lists some rather long wait-times for OM-D's. I'm not sure whether these have any significance for availability through other outlets:
Black Body (no lens) ...............May 17
Silver Body with 12-50 lens ... May 29
Silver Body (no lens) .............. May 30
In an earlier post, someone mentioned that they thought H&B Digital gave accurate dates, but perhaps this time-table is only meaningful for stores that didn't have lots of pre-orders to show Olympus ... and so perhaps are lower down the pecking-order when it comes to receiving new stock. For example, silver bodies do seem to be dribbling out of Amazon and B&H to folks who ordered within the first couple of days of the Olympus announcement. I'm not sure if anyone has yet received a silver OM-D from H&B.
I preordered a silver body from B&H on 2/10 and they won't give any idea whatsoever when it will come. I would take May 30th happily right now!
