Tempting. If I hadn't deserted for a Canon 7D and 100-400 for BIF images, I would be sorely tempted.

And here's a THIRD

Again at LCE, different branch, "Strand".

I guess there is no need to rush now, this lens is starting to get as common as a Ford Focus

I suspect the problem is that it's not heavy enough for a door stop and an odd shape for a paperweight.

Maybe Simon but the price isn't dropping to my wife's price level yet with availability

How long before that used price becomes the standard price for a new one?

Given the most likely 'very' small batch runs and therefore regular 'unavailability' plus the devaluation of the £ ...... I reckon 5 years !

Was working in Colchester today and dropped in - and bought a second hand flash!

Apparently a guy bought up a whole EM-1 kit including lenses, decided it wasn't what he wanted and chopped the whole lot in after a few weeks for a Canon DSLR.

Have to say I was quite impressed by the little shop in Colchester!

Yes indeed, considering how difficult it is to currently obtain the 300mm.

I have however always found Mifsud's very fair and I have to say they have priced this more than fairly.

Whoever owned it must have taken quite a hit though.

I have dealt with the Colchester branch on a few occasions and have to say 'Dave' the manager is a really helpful chap, and the staff for that matter.

Re: HEADS UP: Look what I've just spotted !!

Purely out of interest, what would the warranty situation be with those used lenses? Would it be possible to transfer the 24 months warranty with Olympus? If I was spending £2000 on a lens I would want more than 6 months warranty.

Incidentally, at the moment Park Cameras, Clifton Cameras and SRS are all showing the 300mm F4 as in stock and WEX briefly had one on Saturday, so it looks as if a batch is reaching the dealers at the moment.

Your warranty would be with the shop you purchased the lens/lenses from. The Olympus warranty isn't transferable.
