Hey folks,
Now I've started asking questions there's no stopping me. I'm on the look out for a Oly 35-100mm 2.0 lens, but the guy I normally buy off doesn't have any in stock and doesn't know when he will.
Does anyone have any ideas where I can get my hands on one for a good price? I'm not wanting to pay over the odds and am looking for a new lens, not a refurbished one.

Cheers folks

Have you tried Kerso?
If you need his contact let me know.

If you mean Kerso in Scotland, he is the usual guy I go to :)

Camera Price Buster (http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/prod555.html) claims SRS is the cheapest at 1879 (http://www.srsmicrosystems.co.uk/245/Olympus-Zuiko-Digital-ED-35-100mm-F2-Lens-.html) I've only ever bought a battery off them for Jane's little Canon powershot, but I understand they have a good reputation.

SRS don't carry much stock. They'll most likely have to order one - and I'd say that if 'kerso' can't get one quickly, SRS won't be able to either.

Mine was secondhand off eBay a few months ago for 950.01.

Rafrr was advertising one for sale earlier in the week, worth looking at his thread.

Yes, I have already seen, but as I'm new user I'm not allowed to send him private messages till I post 15 :-( I'm afraid the lens will go away.

P.S. I was also thinking about the ZD150/2 and ZD90-250/2.8 that were on selling also, but although 90-250 price is great it is a little far from my budget, and 150mm is tempting but more especific than 35-100mm. I was able to contact the sellers time ago but now I had problems with my account here.

I had my 35-100 out today and it's a cracking lens.
