Re: Anyone receive their 17/1.8 yet? (Ordering from this sale)

Sorry, I said that in jest.

I actually have a bit of background in this.  Now that I'm retired, I run a business.  We do something similar when there is going to be a delay in shipping one item, but the remainder of an order is available.  In all probability, what you're seeing is an automated part of their order management system.  What probably happened is that they processed your order, packed what they had, and generated a new order so they didn't forget about you when the last lens becomes available.

The only way you'll actually be able to confirm this is to contact Olympus directly.  They may also be able to give you the "new" order number for just the lens so you are able to check the status online, but that all depends on how they manage their system.
