WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

Well I've tracked down a 25mm pancake lens but I'm looking at getting something for wide angle and I believe the 9-18 best suits my needs, a bit wider than the 11-22 and I have little need for the faster lens in my photography, so considering just buying one brand new but would be interested to see if anyone has a 9-18mm kicking about.

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

I am also in the market for a 9-18 so cough some up, chaps.

However, so new and so well-received is this lens that despite its high price I think we'll have to buy a new one, chrism

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

Guys,

I do not know if this helps, I found a used 9-18mm for sale on the LCE (London Camera Exchange) website at their Norwich branch while surfing this morning priced at 399.

Details as follows


Olympus 9-18mm f4-5.6

Type: Lenses

Condition: ***

Location: Norwich

Price 399

Description:
Call 01603 612537 for details on how to order or for product enquiries.

http://www.lcegroup.co.uk/SHdetails.asp?Item=10558

Their new price is 509.99 so there is a reasonable saving, I wonder if they might take on offer?

Cheers

Chris

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

Dear Keith,

The Jessops price looks good as you would get a 2 year UK Olympus warranty, are there any Jessops voucher codes around? That might get another 5-10% off the 439.

Good luck

Chris

I noticed Jessops but its on special order so it could take weeks to get it, its 448 from Warehouse Express and 445 from Calumet (Luckily I have one across the road), am I right in thinking that you would still get a warranty if you bought an Olympus lens from Hong Kong?

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

Dear Chris,

Yes you would, there would be the standard 1 year Olypmus international warranty. Olympus UK gives a 2 year warranty for UK bought stock.

You would just have to take the gamble on what if any import tax was charged.

Have you thought of contacting Kerso for a price?

Cheers

Chris

I haven't no, I thought Kerso only did Canon stuff?

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

My Uncle just recently picked up a 9-18 from Carmarthen Cameras although it has the price of 449 listed on their website he gave them a call and then eventually went to the shop in person and they were more than happy to price match and take a little bit more off again , I can't remember exactly what it cost him now, as he had quite a few other bits and pieces too with the total coming to 450, but I remember him telling me that the lens was 20 cheaper than anywhere else he could find (UK stock) online at the time. From what they said they are fairly new to Olympus and it sounded very much like they wanted to get their name out there - and I suppose me posting about it means that there tactics are working. Anyway with Jessops offering the lens for 399 it's got to be well worth giving them a call to see if they will equal it worst you'll get is a no but you might even be lucky...

Thanks mate, I've emailed Kerso to see what he can do, I've dealt with Carmathen before was very impressed, didn't realise they did Olympus too/=.

Nothing wrong with Kerso either I bought my 70-300 and Spyder2 from him a long time ago at a good price and would happily use him again. If you are at all bothered by guarantees though bear in mind that they will only have the 1 yr international gurantee rather than the UK/EU 2yr guarantee.

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

375 from Kerso Inc P&P, but yeah only 12 month warranty, or roughly 465 from Carmathen albeit with a two year warranty, really worth the extra cost?

Re: WTB: Olympus 9-18mm

465 wow they've hiked up the price a bit in 10 days or so. So much for my recommendation / suggestion to try them .
One extra year of guarantee certainly isn't worth 90 to me although everyone has their own views on that - hence why I mentioned the 1 yr vs 2 yr coverage above. I take the view that most things will fail within the first few hours if there's a clear fault. Anyway hope you manage to find a good deal on the lens...
