Wanted Please - Oly 9-18mm lens

This has been on my wish list for a while, so if anyone has one that they are not really using and would consider selling it, please let me know.
I am heading for Scotlands' west coast in August and my 17.5-45mm kit lens can't give me the results I would like to achieve.
Failing that, does anyone know of any good deals going on this lens? I was thinking about buying from abroad, see ebay, but am unsure about import duty, time-scale , etc. If i have to pay duty, would it cost the same as buying here?
Does anyone have experience of this? I would rather buy a good used one though.

Re: Wanted Please - Oly 9-18mm lens

I just bought mine from Ebay, and a UK seller. I did see a couple of websites where they were selling at a reasonable price...

I didnt want to buy from an ebay "foreign" seller because of the tax duties and the speed of getting one delivered too. I was just on ebay at the right time when a buy it now came on

I hope you get your lens.

I've just ordered one from Ian Kerr (Kerso). Well under 400. He's an Ebay seller, but also sells at a better price outside Ebay. I must have spent over 3K with him over the past few years without a scrap of problem. Do an Ebay search for "Flash cameras" or Kerso then drop him a message.

Re: Wanted Please - Oly 9-18mm lens

Thanks for the tips.
It looks as though kerso would have the best price, if i get desperate, but I am really hoping for a second hand one to come up!
Stephen, didn't you sell one not that long ago?
I have seen a sigma 10-20 for 330ish. Not as good though are they?

Re: Wanted Please - Oly 9-18mm lens

Story of my life! Yes, I sold one once I had repurchased a 7-14. However, I have since bought a G1 as a second camera (lighter than the E3), so I wanted a wide angle to go with it. The 7-14 works (manual focus only) with the relevant adapter, but it's more than a tad unbalanced. Hence the repurchase of a(nother) 9-18
