I just read this over on BioFos. How do you actually get this?

OLYMPUS FREE GRIP OFFER WITH PRE-ORDERS OF OM-D
In a nod to the 40th anniversary of the original OM, Olympus are offering customers who pre-order the chance to claim the ingenious two part grip and battery pack free! Talk to your local Olympus Pen Elite Centre, Warehouse Express, Amazon, Dixons Black Stores and selected Jessops. Pre-order the camera and Olympus will ship the grip to you on delivery of the camera.

Wow. That 60mm Macro will complete my classic prime lens kit:

wide - Oly 12 f/2.0 = 24mm
fast standard - Pany 20mm f/1.7 = 40mm
short tele - Oly 45 f/1.8 = 90mm
tele/macro - Oly 60 f/2.8 = 120mm plus macro

I already pre-ordered a silver Olympus OM-D E-M5 and will be using many of my Zuiko lenses with my MF-2 adapter till I can afford the four lenses above. Happy days are here again!

In reply to:

kevinschoenmakers: Am I to deduce from "At its lower magnification (0.37x) it covers the field of view of the 18mm lens" that the optical finder does not support lenses wider than 28mm-e?

Ah. Got the answer today.

This are the lenses coming in 2012:
-14mm f/2.8
- 18-72mm f/4.0 with IS (Image stabilization).

This are the lenses coming in 2013
- 28mm f/2.8 pancake
- 23mm f/2.0
- 72-200mm f/4.0 IS
- 12-24mm f/4.0 IS

Wow. Good question.
