Wanted - Zuiko 90-250/2.8

Hi everybody,

Still looking for a Zuiko 90-250mm for serious bird photography. Anybody out there who's willing to part with their lens?

Regards,

Wolfgang

Re: Wanted - Zuiko 90-250/2.8

I had the pleasure of using this for several hours at the "Members Meet" in Epping

It truly is a remarkable lens and I'm sure you will get great pictures with it.

It remains one that while I'd like to have, I simply cannot justify. Not so much on the grounds of the cost more that I work at the other end of the spectrum 7-14mm

I regularly look for Zuiko lenses so if I spot one on line or at a Camera Fair, I'll let you know.

Good Luck

Zuiko 90-250mm for 2.900 GBP ($4.840) .... some $1.160 under regular price.

New and never used from a photo store. Looks like a good deal... if one has been saving up for this kind of a lens.

Only thing is you have to add around 20% customs and tax in the UK.

Well... only if you wouldn't know someone who could bring it along as a personal item.

... and then there is the old method of having someone you know to order it for you, receive it and pack it... and when sending it, inform of a completely different price that won't result in further economical punishment.

Re: Wanted - Zuiko 90-250/2.8

And one here where you don't have to make a bid... a BUY IT NOW price of the 50-200 is some laughable 646 pounds! At that price, it really doesn't matter if one has to pay for freight and 20% tax on top.

There are 5 of these lenses available.

Quote:
Time left: 11 days 20 hours (Aug 27, 200909:22:55 PDT)
Price: US $1,069.00
Brand new with 1 year warranty.

Unbelievable.


EDIT:

Yes, it is unbelievable how bum-dumb I can be. The above 2 are 50-200 and NOT 90-250 models....

Even I should know the difference. .... need more coffee.

"No international bidders. No international credit cards..."

Cameta cameras (ebay shop) sometimes has this lens tho, and will ship internationally.

Re: Wanted - Zuiko 90-250/2.8

Having a good connection in the US is essential sometimes. Have them to place the order, pay through their card (after first sending money to them)... and then they arrange for the freight.

It is unfortunate how often the sellers won't sell outside the US... seemingly without any valid reason. They DO get paid BEFORE having to send anything... so what their problem is, I don't know.

I was also "shocked" by the shipping/handling charges for a SINGLE remote through Amazon. A replacement remote for RM-1 for $12 was to cost 68 (or 9) dollars in shipping and handling charges.

3999 though so maybe not so good a price!

well the RRP is 5299 and the street price is about 4,500 so I am not sure why you don't think 3999 is a good price..........

Jessops seems to be the next cheapest at 4,109 so I suppose you're right!

Btw, I've bought from SRS in the past & the service was very good.
