Don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page and have a look at the accessories some are at half price like the grip for example, and when buying any lens you really should consider a UV filter for nothing else than to protect the front element

          This question can cause a lot of problems but I understand you're wanting an answer anyone who purchases this camera must do so under the assumption there is no $100 cashback however those who do purchase can you email us and be considered one by one, but we cannot give a definite answer on a public forum

      Not according to the T & S of the cashback but still a crackingly good bargain.

    Unbelievable price. Thought I got a bargain with $1999-$300 cash back but this insane. Awesome camera.

    Don't think the lens cash back applies as this is a bundle with different bar codes.

      If you want our website has a really cool feature you can put stuff on layby, so just go through the checkout as per normal and when you get to how do you want pay for this choose layby and you can lay by up to 3 months there is a little wizard there that tells you how much the monthly payments would be just by clicking on each quantity of months. I am pretty sure no extra fees are involved but I'm not 100%

      Quite a few people are asking how long this deal will last, I would be very surprised is it last till Monday, but who knows

          Hi, Nick

          Quick question - I am wondering if I order this deal right now - would it ship and arrive to me before Thursday next week 11 December (I'm in Brisbane)? I know that's probably a difficult question to answer - I'm just over overseas next Thursday and would love to take this camera with me. :/

          @mandyjharris:

          I have been told that it will, especially if you use the express order which is about $10 extra I think but what I can tell you for sure that if you put in the comments of the sale must receive goods by (then the date) OR please cancel the order, you will be safe

        •  

          @nick coulson: Thank you SO MUCH Nick! I really appreciate your help. I've just put my order in online. :)

      ordered around 2:30pm the day of this post and order status is "Stock expected 5th December"

    •  

      My order status still pending. I suspect they haven't reconciled BPay payments yet (I did it on Sunday)

    •  

      I haven't received confirmation of shipping yet (paid for express shipping).

      I sent an enquiry earlier today and received a very prompt response. To paraphrase, they advised that I should receive my order by the end of the week and that the delay was due to the sheer number of orders for this item.

  •  

    my order doesn't show up in my history..anyone else?
    Also I only received a "payment receipt" email, no other emails.

    Anyone else do layby through paypal? Im having trouble trying to pay the second instalment. When i re-directs me to the paypal checkout page, I can't log in to my paypal account, even though the login details are 100% correct (I can log in on the actual paypal site just fine).
    I've noticed the URL is sandbox.paypal.com etc not just paypal.com.
    Its got me worried.

  •  

    I paid via Bpay on Friday as well. They said my order will be dispatched today. Hopefully i can get it by Friday. I think they were just flooded with orders.

  •  

    My order was recieved today but they packed the em-5 body instead.. My original order was for the em-5. Kit but cancelled it, and paid more to get the em-1 kit which they acknowledged. So disapointed as I wanted to take it on my trip on Monday

  •  

    Presumably those that chose express delivery have had orders shipped.
    Did anyone choose the cash on delivery option?

  •  

    My order updated to back ordered (ETA 6th December). Anyone else? Hope it arrives soon!

    Due to the overwhelming volume of orders for this item there is a minor delay and you should receive the goods towards the end of this week as we have several hundred orders to process

    No update as at 4.20pm (AEDT) yesterday, so I asked them to confirm the original "end of the week" statement. Within half an hour, two status updates landed. This was followed by a cleverly-timed, somewhat smug email that didn't actually answer my question re delivery by the end of the week:

    This morning (5/12/2014) the Star Track website shows that the (express delivery) parcel is still in Perth.

    slow clap GGCW

    After years of buying DSLRs, lenses and accessories from Digi Direct I thought it would be good to try a new retailer. I really wanted to like these guys, but their customer expectations management is flakey at best. As the old sayings go, "service is remembered long after the price is forgotten" and "you only get one chance to make a good first impression".

    Ironically, the Amazon order (for some SD cards and an EM—1 case) that I placed on Sunday night, about 90mins after placing the GGCW order, will be delivered today from 15,000km away. And Aussie retail still can't understand why we buy from the USA?

    •  

      STOP PRESS! The Star Track system has jumped from "Perth - Arrived at StarTrack Location for processing" [no departure info] to "Onboard with driver for delivery". I'm slightly hopeful that the parcel may still be delivered today.

        Good news: Order WAS delivered today in Sydney by StarTrack. THANK YOU, Rep!

        Bad news: They are shipping these kits with the shipping label stuck directly to the kit box (at least, that's how mine arrived). There was no satchel/box or even a layer of bubblewrap. If you are a camera collector*, take note - you will receive a scuffed-up and slightly dented Olympus box (depending on well/otherwise StarTrack handle your item).

        (*)You know who you are, with your attic full of black Canon boxes and gold Nikon/Nikkor boxes. ;-)

          Final update (while I'm busy replying to myself ;-)

          Opened the camera body box ….and I've been shipped the black model not the silver model as ordered. FFS!

          Notching this one up to experience.

          @drosair:

          The camera is now in the hands of it's new owner. No time to get it returned for them to ship the correct model (it arrived with 3 business hours to spare). Such is life, as the cliché goes. :-)

        •  

          @tikei:

          Correct. None whatsoever. Their handling of my item appears to have been:

          1. Receive stock from distributor
          2. Open package to stuff some of their own brochures inside the Olympus packaging.
          3. Run some clear packing tape over both ends to stop them popping open in transit.
          4. Slap a StarTrack delivery label on the outside.
          5. Hand to courier.

          For collectors, or anyone giving it as a gift, the shipping label is very messy to remove. In any case, even if you can remove it cleanly, you still have a scratched-up Olympus box which looks like it's come from the bargain bin at Target.

          @cyrax83:

          It all feels very amateur hour. It's kind of what you'd expect from a boot-strapped drop-ship start-up NOT an established company.

          Lesson well-learned.

  •  

    Hope orders get dispatched today! Got a birthday next weekend..

  •  

    I still haven't heard about my pickup order as yet. Supposed to be today. Would like to use the camera (or at least the lens) for a birthday party tomorrow.

    Great deal!

  •  

    I was told an ETA today as well but haven't heard anything.

    Paid by CC & paid express delivery so theoretically should've been one of the first despatched but still waiting..

  •  

    ETA on mine says 6th, so maybe shipment form olympus was delayed until tomorrow? Do your orders say back-ordered?

      Still shows 5th. "Goods in Transit From Distributo"

        i ordered and paid an hour or two after the deal was posted, but my order stuffed up and didn't complete the final step. So i had to reorder this a couple days ago. Hopefully I'm still in the next batch that they get! got no camera atm and really needed one this weekend :(

    Still in Payment Pending for me even though the payment was sent on Monday 1st!
    I got some feedback from email regarding the payment confirmation even though the order is still not updated, now not getting any response from them. Doesn't inspire much confidence in them.

    Sold my old camera thinking this would be processed in a reasonable amount of time, I just hope they can actually send them on Monday though unlikely as they cannot even process a payment in their systems.

    They were quick to respond with my issue and promptly sent me the em1 body the next day and included an express post satchel for me to return their em5 body.

    You should know when your order is on its way when you get the start rack tracking link.

      Last time I purchased from these guys they were great! Really on the ball and kept me updated. I suspect they've been smashed with orders and are just working on getting them out the door as quickly as possible. But still, it would be great if they kept up the same level if communication as last time.
      If they can get the rest of the orders out today, including my 'backordered' one, that would be awesome!

    Hi….. Sorry for my absence…. Just to let everybody know 59 orders was shipped today 8-12-2014 we are expecting a 40+ delivery today So hopefully should go out tomorrow hopefully 9-12-2014 and we have more stocks leaving Sydney today, coming to us yes we have been swamped with orders that is true but it is great price and a fantastic product so we're sorry for any delays.

  •  

    Not a happy camper - got a notification from them last Friday (a week after placing my order!!) saying "We have gone through the system and we have no record of your order. We have confirmed the payment receipt."

    No idea how they could have taken my money but not recorded a sale on my order, very suss!

    Subsequent emails were not responded to. Also haven't gotten any email saying my shipment might be amongst the 59 being sent out today.

    Not a good first experience - give me my camera!! :(

    •  

      same thing happened to me..but luckily i noticed my order was missing so I contacted them..now it's just sitting on backordered.
      sucks cos I would have been one of the first to order as well.

    Hi Nick, my order is stick at picking slip printed for last week or so and have had no response to my numerous emails. Things getting bit desperate now

  •  

    Worst online order management ever!

    I expected much better response from an Australian store.

    Called the number and no one could ever find out the status of the online order.

    •  

      Hi guys
      All Internet orders are on different software to the shop orders so if you call the shop they won't know how to find it unless they put the call through to the online department, the fastest way to find out about to order, if there are any problems and any messages recorded about to order go to the login link top right hand corner of the site OR https://gerrygibbscamerawarehouse.com.au/login.html

      Here you can view your order and any comments or statuses that is related to it, if you see a problem you should email them e-store@ggch.com.au

      They may be a little slow because they also have a Great deal on the Sony A7 so these two deals have pretty much got all hands on deck and there seems to be only time to update the status to "sent with the tracking number"

      •  

        Either I am not a very good online shopper, or I just don't understand it - I can't find the status of my order anywhere on the website as the only options under my account is :

        My Account

        View or change my account information.
        View or change entries in my address book.
        Change my account password.
        

        Email Notifications

        Subscribe or unsubscribe from newsletters.
        View or change my product notification list.
        

        So which is it?

        •  

          Seeing that I'm not getting any luck with Gerry Gibbs, anyone kind enough to provide some guidance on where exactly I can see my order status on the website?

        •  

          @jpwwong: It's above the "My Account" header with Previous Orders, else there is a "show all orders" link to the top right.

          If that isn't showing I'd suspect that the order isn't in the system for some reason or under another login maybe? I'd give them a call when they open today to chase it up!

        •  

          @Ranekor: I am sure I'm using the correct account but unfortunately no such orders link exists on my account, and no one at the store is willing to help or willing to put me through to the online department.

          No response from email and no one to speak to on the phone.

          I think GG has lost me as a customer after this horrible experience.
