Then what is with the press release? You'd think it would be right.

Right at the bottom of that.

Hmm, and B&H lists it for $900 with the viewfinder.

I asked Olympus customer support if this kit (specifically, this kit, on amazon, that I've preordered) included the viewfinder. Their response:

Dear Peter,
The VF-1 is bundled with the 17mm lens and is part of the kit.

Regards,
Olympus Imaging America, Inc.

Thanks for the help. Amazon support doesn't really answer anything. Sounds good!

Did they say anything about the estimated shipping date? I want to pre-order one, but am afraid it might arrive after I leave the country.

The US release is "Mid July".

Amazon really should provide a list of included items for products like this. And it shouldn't get lost in a page with an avalanche of information I've already seen at review sites.

I talked to Amazon over email and was told they do not know what is coming in the kit.
I talked to Olympus over the phone and was told that there will be a 17mm kit with and without the viewfinder so it's possible that the one Amazon is selling does not have it. Of course there wasn't any way for them to tell me which kit Amazon is getting. The price seems like it would include the viewfinder, especially since Amazon usually has competitive pricing. And I really want to use my prime shipping, but I'm not going to preorder without knowing for sure.

It costs the same as the kit with the viewfinder, so I'm going to assume it includes it and just return it if it doesn't. :\

Looks like amazon finally updated the listing with the correct info... viewfinder included.
Just placed my order with prime next day shipping.
