Re: Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75mm 1:1.8 Lens - Black

This thread really does highlight the difference between this forum and others. I have stalked this lens as have many of us and hovered over the purchase on this thread (no im not trying to sneak in )

I just wanted to acknowledge the kind spirit shown.

Nice one Simon. As I found when I dealt with you, a real gentleman.

Stephen, I think you know I bought "loads" from Captain D aka Chris Dowling and many others here and I have sold on here too.

I do not like "cheap p&p" - because of the claims service and always 3 x wrap sending because thats how I like to receive and HAVE RECEIVED ON HERE - its nerve racking sending or waiting to receive "cameras/lenses" and having someone who CARES EQUALLY AS MUCH (not just a fleabay trader) makes such a difference

EVERY transaction (bar one, who did not want to knock off p&p+ Ins on a 50-200 SWD, when I viewed & tried (did not "know" the Member on here (only 2 posts and one was for the lens) and offered/paid cash in hand there and then - which I found unreasonable and greedy ) was superb

In total, buying a backup E-5 and one for Nick and lenses for both of us on E-1's and then E-5's I have traded going on £8,000 HAS BEEN A PLEASURE IN TRANSACTIONS

It really is a TRUE to OLYMPUS CLUB Forum Special Thanks to our Ian and Oly and I hope Ian puts this thread to Oly as a major benefit of Oly

Thank you Ed, and so are you my friend

I really do LOVE being being part of this community of like minded individuals who have no interest what-so-ever in slagging each other off or go around insisting …"My Canikon is better than your PentOly" etc, etc. What we try to do is help one another and be 'constructive' not destructive with any critique or opinion given.

We members of this wonderfully friendly and informative/helpful forum are what make it IMO unique. These days it is very, very rare that I bother to visit any other forum.

Cheers, Simon

Re: Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75mm 1:1.8 Lens - Black

Scott, however, Ian could rent you one for a week or two ? at very reasonable rates I may add and his and Julia's service is EXCELLENT I have availed myself of this

You dont have to "own it, to use it" - at the moment mine sits on the lens shelf lots - but from October to 1st week in December it shall be used at least every friday & saturday - for the Christmas Card of Family photos Markets
