Re: 70-300mm for 244.94 with code AW10

You must be psychic or something!

I've just received my 70-300mm from the same company with the same code this morning. I saw an old post on some forum somewhere from last year saying Dixons were cheap for this lense so after checking around decided to buy one from there.

Just out of curiosity, I put "Dixons Coupons" or somthing like that in Google and came up with a site with a list of money off coupons to use. It let me use the AW10 coupon so I ordered there and then. That was Monday afternoon and I received it this morning, which is pretty good service (even thought they say it will take 5 working days).

I wasn't truly prepared for just how substantial it is compared to the 40-150mm though!

Thanks for the heads up, I bought one for 244.94 delivered

I ordered on the web at 20:00 05/03/08 delivered today at 14:00.

I had been watching one on e-bay, it went for 254 + 8.99p&p

Now I have to try and learn how to use it effectively

Sorry to hear that Sid, I guess at that price stock has been flying off the shelves

I guess they will be back in stock soon.

he states:

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THIS MODEL NEEDS TO BE PRE-ORDERED AND HAS AN ORDER LEAD-TIME OF APPROXIMATELY 2-4 WORKING DAYS.
So don't think he has it in stock.

Ive ordered so will let you know.

To be honest, if it arrives in 2 to 4 days at this price I will be quite happy.

Cool Kevin, hopfully they are quick to ship.

Didn't see anything indicating UK stock but they do mention 12 month warranty, is that with them or Olympus?

Youi are right that the supplier isnt stocking in the UK but importing, although he has confirmed to me this morning that delivery wil be 3-4 days, brand new,boxed etc with Olympus warranty.

Ill let you know at the end of the week, fingers crossed.

Re: 70-300mm for 244.94 with code AW10

Ok, so the lens has turned up (6 days in total, although this did span a weekend).

Everything is hunky dorey, apart from the paperwork all being in Japanese. This isnt a real problem as the Oly Worldwide Warranty etc is all included, the only issue is I dont have any english instructions to explain all the wonderfull markings along the lens eg: 1:8, 1:12 etc, are these guides as to magnification?

THe service from the supplier was very good, and this is brand new Olympus boxed stock (just imported from Japan I guess), all in all though I cant fault it for just under 250.
