Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS lens delayed because of many pre-orders (wink wink)


Adding the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS lens to my collection of photo gear that has “greatly exceeded expectations” and got so many pre-orders that was of course delayed. If one is to believe all those press releases, the photo industry must be doing great and I wonder why Olympus is selling their camera business.

Olympus financial losses over the years (thanks Eamon!)

Adorama and B&H still show a shipping date of September 8th, 2020.

Here is the translation of the Olympus press release for the believers:

Thank you for using Olympus products. Many customers have made reservations for the “M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS” released on September 11, 2020. It may take some time to deliver the product. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to customers, including customers who are waiting for our products. (Olympus Japan)
