40-150 f2.8 - upcoming Lightning Deal on Amazon

Sorry I couldn't give more advanced warning - starts in 30 minutes, for Prime members (and at some later point, for none-Prime).

Good grief. I want it, but can't justify the outlay - I rarely shoot long (besides, I'm still liking the results I get from my 'piece of $%^' 40-150, at the other end of the scale).

Showing at 1148.50 now but I'm not a Amazon prime member and it says lightning deal has ended. Looks like only 23% were claimed. At 975 it would probably have been in my basket, the only problem being where to hide it.

I looked and looked at this deal! It was a great price but I still have my 50 - 200 SWD and from what I have read there is little difference between the two.

Does anyone on here feel this way? Or have people found it worth upgrading at the end of the day?

The 40-150 is still there on Amazon at a good price although slightly higher,worth I be gaining much from buying it?

I have both but since getting the 40-150 pro my 50-200 has been cleaned and put in its case! You do lose some reach but I feel I get a better all round result from the new lens and TC. Ed

Not quite such a good price as the lightening deal but HDEW have the combination on offer for 100 more.

I believe that is for lens only - no teleconverter

I thought it was way out of keeping other prices I had seen. Now I know why

Blimey I didn't realise things were that cheap in Oz. Still for the UK it's cheap. Mind you my next day delivery has turned into 2-3 days looks like Amazon over stretched themselves a bit.

My watch arrived two days late. I know they're stretched, but if Amazon Logistics could give me time to answer the bloody door, rather than have me running down the street after them?
