Who's cancelling OM-D pre-order, or decided to pass on the OM-D and why?
Jun 2, 2012

Hello,

Time has passed since I pre-ordered a silver body only, and I still have not received it.

A very reliable source now says not to expect any OM-D silver or black body only in USA until July-Aug (?). What's up with that?

So, how many of you have cancelled your OM-D order for another camera and which camera did you decide on?

Or thought more about the camera since real world users have reported on the OM-D, and now decided to pass on the OM-D as it is not a significant upgrade from what you are now shooting with?

This is a follow up to my post how many have buyer's remorse since the DPR review:

Now considering a G1X or Fuji Pro 1 since I would like to replace my Gf-1/G2 for an upcoming trip to France. I have been told that the GH3 wil also be out soon with better low noise high IQ.

Plan to shoot Lascaux cave paintings, and chateaus by available light. I will carry no tripod.

Thanks and sorry for the ranting.
