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

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 = 24mmfast standard - Pany 20mm f/1.7 = 40mmshort tele - Oly 45 f/1.8 = 90mmtele/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!
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.
