Dreadful failure on OM systems part to provide new cameras to people who want to buy them.
Utter rubbish!


I see this more of a supply chain issue rather than an OM System issue. Many people still don't have their Nikon Z9's either as those bodies have been trickling out, same goes for a lot of new lenses as well. All manufacturer's have been affected by limited parts, especially with electronics.

The difference is Nikon has been affected by this since 2001 😁

OM Systems is now saying no new OM-1's will be available before the end of June, so I cancelled my order with them. Hopefully my dealer order will show up sooner through the Canadian distribution pipeline.


I find that hard to believe. I understand a trickle, but nothing for two months, that seems weird.

If OM Systems is like Olympus, sometimes one person says one thing and another person something completely different.

In the meantime, my extra free battery and a grip are on the way.

Now still waiting for the kit and one more grip.

My shop also has two 150-400mm lenses available.

The Camera Exchange in San Antonio had one OM-1 in stock this morning, but they don't ship to Canada.

You know, we're hoping to move later this year and I'm fearing the moment I'm no longer in the US when it comes to getting relative affordable camera gear quickly. When I last left, I kept the gear I bought before moving for eight years, only to start upgrading upon return.

Uh, maybe that's a good thing

My dealer has received 23 cameras since the beginning of March. I'm currently #5 on the wait list, so there's a good chance I will get one when the next shipment arrives... whenever that might be.

Appreciate the tip, UPS says it'll be here on Thursday I was hoping for the kit with 12-40 f/2.8 II lens, but I don't "need" that lens so will look to fill other gaps, like a 8-25 and I already have a 40-150 f/2.8 Pro which will hopefully give me a good idea what the AF system is capable of while I figure out if a 300 f/4 or 150-400 f/4.5 is in my future or if I'm still not digging Oly and decide to just stick with Nikon...

Anyone received their second battery in Canada yet? I ordered a grip last week and it came in within 2 or 3 days. No battery yet though . I must admit that with taking the OM-1 out in cool to cold weather, the battery life has been very good compared to my mkII. I definitely needed the grip with battery for that camera.

No second battery for me in the US yet.

Where did you order the grip from? I ordered a grip from Getolympus on April 6th and still showing processing. Haven't seen it in stock online anywhere.

I ordered from GetOlympus Canada and have received both my free battery and my charger/battery combo. I pre-ordered on the 15th

I ordered the grip from The Camera Store of YouTube fame. I was extremely surprised when I got a call saying it was in. I asked about the free battery. They said they had 25 on order.

On my order Amazon did some goof up and it got auto cancelled just before shipment. While they accepted the mistake chance to get the camera was gone.

Tired of searching and not able to get anywhere, I ended up buying Nikon Z7 II and Z 100-400 and putting an order for their 800mm pf. Too sad, I really wanted OM1 and 150-400, I wonder if I did this, how many more might have waited and switched or thinking of going somewhere else…

So now you will have to wait for the 800mm. You may regret not waiting. A few months is nothing in the life of a photographer IMO, unless you have no camera at all.

Good part with Nikon Z7 is I can get 1.4TC for 100-400 coupled with DX mode giving a good enough reach still retaining 20mp file. Of course there are quite a few compromises compared to OM1, but better than not having a camera

I had no photo equipment for a while and was hoping to build kit around OM-1 but didn’t expect It to be so popular and such a long wait. But I am very happy that Olympus is finally getting its due, probably first digital Olympus that received so much positive reception across the board. I am hoping I will be able to add it in the kit by end of the year or early next year and come back to Olympus fold

Unless that happens to be your busiest time of the year, or the time when you have a major trip planned...

After learning that Olympus Canada was expecting my camera to ship sometime around the end of June, and with The Camera Store having no idea of when they would get the one I ordered through them, I came across a like-new Sony A1 and FE 200-600mm zoom package that saved me $4600 versus the cost of the OM-1 and my 150-400 zoom, so that was just too good to pass up.

Maybe this winter or next spring I'll see if the OM stuff is available on the used market and have another look at it.
