Cool Christmas special offer - one-third off and extended hire time for no extra charge!

Best value ever hire from this site!

As usual, I'd rather see our stock of Olympus lenses being used over the Christmas and new year period so here is this year's Christmas special offer!

Hire a lens* and get one third off the hire fee and we'll add an additional three days if you need it for no extra charge. We're already the cheapest in the UK and now we're even cheaper!

Get great bokeh with the m.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8; defy low light with the 25mm f/1.8 and 17mm f/1.8 and get all round fast versatility with the 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro. Not to mention the super-wide 9-18mm, 7-14mm f/4 (Four Thirds only at present), 60mm f/2.8 macro and many more! We also have the Four Thirds Top Pro lenses of course.

Please don't be disappointed by our stock being snapped up!

This deal is for hires booked now and fulfilled before Thursday, 24th December. Please remember that shipping times may be longer than expected next week because of the Christmas rush. This offer can only apply to UK destinations due to the time-scales involved.

Please check our hire prices here:

http://e-group.uk.net/hire/camera_hire_prices.pdf

For more information or to book a hire please email the service via hire AT e-group.uk.net.

The price list does not include 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro, 25mm f/1.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro prices - please contact me directly for details.

Happy Christmas everyone!

Ian

* Lenses only; camera bodies and accessory hire rates are not included, sorry. Discount applies to hire fee only, not shipping costs.

By the way, if you think anyone you know may be able to benefit from this offer please spread the word

You don't need to be an e-group member to be a hire customer.

Thanks,

Ian

Yes indeed Amanda

Can you email me via hire *at* e-group.uk.net with the date you wish to receive the lens and the date you would send it back and I will send you a quote for your approval.

Ian

I originally forgot to make it clear that the discount applies to the hire fee only, not shipping costs. I have now updated the details in the original post.

Sorry for any confusion!

It's true!

I rented the 300mm 2.8 off Ian prior to becoming a member of the forum! Super equipment!

Allows you to try the new equipment available from Olympus too.... like the new zoom lens: 75-3000mm f/4-6.7 II should be able to see the man from John Lewis stranded on the moon with this beauty!

I dare say I'm preaching to the converted here though!

If only we had this down under! A great offer for those able to take advantage of it.

Merry Christmas to you all anyhow.

No more 40-150 Pros I'm afraid - still plenty of other lenses left though

Though I say so myself this is a fantastic offer...

Time is running out!

Re: Christmas special offer - one-third off and extended hire time for no extra charge!

I am advised by the Post Office that I can send lenses in time for Christmas as late as this Wednesday, so your last chance to take advantage of this offer really is just a couple of days away.

Our most popular lenses in recent months have been the 12-40 Pro, 25mm f/1.8, 60mm f/2.8 macro, 75mm f/1.8 and the 40-150 Pro. Don't forget, for example, we have the amazing ZD 35-100mm f/2.0 - it's big but it's bright and amazingly sharp. We also have the rare ZD 150mm f/2.0. Both these ZD lenses are excellent when used with the E-M1.

Don't hesitate to get in touch, if only to discuss technical merits

Email hire AT e-group.uk.net

Ian

Re: Christmas special offer - one-third off and extended hire time for no extra charge!

Just wanted to add a quick response to this thread to say thanks to Ian for the Christmas hire offer.

I've just packed up the 12-40 Pro I hired for the Christmas period and am really sorry to see it go back. A brilliant piece of kit IMHO.

I've used Ian's lens hire service a couple of times before this offer came up (and was really pleased with the service both times) and this has been no exception.

If the Christmas offer hadn't been posted I wouldn't have thought about hiring a lens. I've taken a few of my favourite pictures of 2015 with this lens plus having it for the hire period made me make the effort to go out to use it before it had to go back.
