50-200mm SWD lens bargain?

Ok, while browsing the t'internet I came across this at Argos, of all places!

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50 -200mm 1:2.8-3.5 SWD priced at £800 brand new

From having a look at Google seems this is a good couple of hundred quid cheaper than elsewhere.

Just thought I'd share!

Out of stock.

Everybody else has them for this price or below when they're out of stock!

They've got them in stock at both my local Argos' but you can get it cheaper from Kerso

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BRAND-NEW-OLYM...#ht_500wt_1154


If you contacted him direct and not through EBay, you'd probably get it slightly cheaper than that too.

The web link you gave says out of stock, but maybe individual stores have them.

Re: 50-200mm SWD lens bargain?

Last week it was on offer for £780....I have checked 30 stores in the south east and there is no stock which is really annoying as I have £300 in gift vouchers which could be used at Argos.

Byford,
If you put in your postcode for check stock in your area and click go it will offer an 'Order into to Store to Collect' for your nearest stores. Collection would be between 5-8 October. I think you'll get a further £10 off as there is a promotion on just now if you spend at least £100.

I would advice group members to do a Google search on Simply Electronics (interestingly Google has a recommended search term of Simply Electronics Scam) before placing an order, it may help inform subsequent decisions.


It would appear that not every customer is happy.

I've emailed Argos and they confirmed they can supply one to my local store so have reserved one. Taking into account my vouchers and that I've just sold a sony lens for £200 I don't think I will get another chance to get this lens for £300 of "real" money. (Also stops me wasting the vouchers on clothes or domestic items !!) I may use the £10 voucher I will be entitled to for going towards the Olympus Dslr bag they have.

Good news, glad someone was able to take advantage of this to get what is a fantastic lens!

Dont forget to post some pictures when you get it!!

Re: 50-200mm SWD lens bargain?

Yes I must find time to compile a gallery. One advantage of the Argos collect from store purchase has occurred to me is that there are no difficult questions to answer when a box arrives from Warehouse Express............
