Mine has arrived about thirty minutes ago. Bought off Amazon UK as a "fulfilled order", seller 'Gerion's Fotobude' ..... £1042.00 inc VAT.

Yes they are European stock, I emailed the seller before buying, lens was shipped by Amazon UK out of their 'Fife' warehouse.

Yes it is brand new, yes it is EU stock, yes it is a hell of a good deal

I notice that on Amazon UK it is currently listed with the 1.4x for £1284.10 inc VAT and by the same seller, only one left though.

I'll get something posted within a couple of weeks. I say weeks because my priority now must lay with deciding what film gear to sell given what I've recently spent on new digital

I'm keeping my Leica's for sure but I have a gut feeling that both the OM4ti and some of the OM Zuiko's plus my Hasselblad will go.. Way too much gear and nowhere near enough time too use it all


On another note, the free messenger bag and extra warranty for pre ordering the mkII has just arrived too

The satchel is rather nice but again I've got too many, so maybe it will go too, however I'm not certain yet. IMO it 'is' worth the £99.00 price tag if you were to purchase it, very nicely made, not to the same standard as my 'Fogg' satchel but then again it's 1/5th of the price

RE: 40-150 Pro ...... it's impressively small yet at the same time impressively well made.

Kind regards, Simon

Re: If you are after a 40-150 Pro check this out

At the weekend, someone who is a member here let me try his on his EM-1. Lovely piece of glass! I focused on infinity and then a few feet away. In both cases it was instantly sharp, with no noise, hesitation of delay.
