Does anyone have the MC-20 Teleconverter in stock?

I keep searching, but it seems that no one has this in stock in the UK.

Can anyone prove me wrong? As I'd love to buy one

No they don't. I have one on order with them. They are coming through in small quantities, 20-30 at a time. I was told sometime ago if you haven't got one on order you could be waiting until next year for one.

If you're desperate enough to pay increased shipping charges, import duty, etc., Amazon.com have them for $429.00 (331.23 assuming 0.77= $1.00) and can deliver to UK by 24th October https://www.amazon.com/Olympus-M-Zui...1723765&sr=8-1

That might not work out much more expensive in the end over UK prices?

Re: Does anyone have the MC-20 Teleconverter in stock?

I just had an email from Olympus Uk Shop telling me that they are now available. But the shop still shows them as 'Available soon' and won't let me add one to the basket!

Did you mean the Olympus EU shop? They did the opposite to me when I set up a notification request for when an item came into stock, I saw it become available on their website and ordered it many hours before they sent a notification.


P.S. Do you have a 15% off code ready to use if they get them in?

Sorry, yes I meant the Eu shop. I don't have any discount code. So, if you're happy to share it, I would be most gratefull

Re: Does anyone have the MC-20 Teleconverter in stock?

I had an email from SRS saying they had a 15% off sale on all Olly lenses the w/e just gone. The mc-20 said out of stock but I ordered one anyway on Saturday to get the 15%, it arrived on Tuesday. 339 including postage so web sites are not always correct.
After a very brief test I am very impressed with the quality of images from both the 40-150 pro and the 300 pro with the converter. Amazing to hand hold a 1200 mm equivalent lens and still get sharp shots! Steep learning curve though, wafer thin DOF and actually finding the subject is hard, especially anything moving.
