There was a 35mm at PC World in Sutton Coldfield on Sunday at 99, was up visiting the in-laws so I can't get it for you.

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

Thanks to all for the information recieved, it was a great help in locating this lens. I have now purchased on from PC World Chesterfield and with the information I got from Derby they had 2 (now 1) and Mansfield PC World had 1 left. So if anyone in the East Midlands area is on the lookout for this lens here`s 2 to buy.

Loads of thanks again.

Ian

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

Hi

I picked up a 35mm Macro today at PC World Weston-super-Mare 99.97


If anyone nearby is interested.

They have one left it's the display one, in a cabinet, probably has never been touched.

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

I pass the Strand Branch in London and they tend to have them on display, plus 12-60mm and 70-300mm, as mentioned in previous posts on this subject they are a clearance branch for stores closing or re fitting. Spoke to a guy on the photo department and he confirmed it

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

From my original post: "They will not supply by post, but the assistant suggested speaking to the manager of your local branch and offer to pay carriage charges on top of the purchase price and buy from them. If they are helpful that is!"

NEWCASTLE Northumberland Street (Branch number 75)
60/62 Northumberland Street
NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE
NE1 7DF
Tel: 08445 61 62 63

This is a generic phone number listed against all stores.

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

I got two lenses from Currys Digital Strand Road London by going to my local Currys (N. Ireland ) they let me pay them , they e-mailed a copy of my receipt to the Strand Road Branch with my address details etc. I then paid DHL to pick up the lens and I got it next day. I did this twice with no problems.
Dealt with John Sparks manager (Strand Road) on 02073790112 might be worth a call they might still have stock.

Hope this helps.
Wee man

The lens was still there today (25th early pm) - had a look but couldn't still afford!! The staff said that someone had come over from Ireland specially for one of their stock - despite the cost of getting to Newcastle it was still cheaper than elsewhere!
