It's coming from Switzerland and advertised "ALL CUSTOMS AND DUTIES PAID, NO EXTRA CHARGES,UK RETURN", so fingers crossed!
Well, I paid my money by Paypal and go an immediate acknowledgement, but not from the vendor. Four days went by during which my anal sphincter became increasingly twitchy, and then I got an email from the vendor with an attached image showing the lens in its box and the order. This still left a nagging doubt in my mind, but then a couple of days ago I got an email with the tracking details. This morning the lens arrived, with nothing extra to pay.

So it looks like at 267 I did get a bargain after all, especially as some on Ebay are being advertised at 482!

I'm puzzled. The packaging didn't indicate in any way that the lens had come from Switzerland, just a return address in Salford, so I'm not sure of its origin and travels.

I've now just got to get out there and start using it. I might leave my zoom lenses at home and just take my 30mm Sigma and the 15mm Panasonic and see if an 'all prime' setup suits me.
