If I could get airside I'd buy it just to sell! Almost worth picking up a cheap Ryanair ticket - almost!

Re: 40-150mm lens

not a big demand for either the 14-42 or the 40-150 does anybody not already have them?

Re: 40-150mm lens

Must admit I don't have the 14-42 with my present set-up, as I bought the E-3 body-only. I use the 12-60 as a standard lens.

I don`t own either of these lenses anymore either! I normally use the 14-54mm & 50-200mm instead. ( I also have the 12-60mm but find the 14-54mm a little lighter for shooting all day)!

Re: 40-150mm lens

ok obviously I should have said "does anyone not either have one or has already upgraded from one" or something like that

Re: 40-150mm lens

All,
I've already got a 40-150 lens. I'm still airside in Edinburgh - I work there 2 days a week so if anyone is interested I could buy it and post it to them. I'll be here for another 2 hours so send a reply if anyone is interested.

Re: 40-150mm lens

Jamie,

I'll have it, but you probably have to take some risks!

I gave my E510 & kit lenses to my son so I have my E3, 12-60 and 50-200 ... but the 50-200 is a bit big for going on family walks.

So I would definately go for this.

How am I going to pay ??

- Could do a CC over the phone to the salesman ??

- You buy & I send you cheque ??

If I dont pay up everyone here will think very badly of me!

How are we going to do this??

Let me know what might work for you.

Chris

Re: 40-150mm lens

Chris,
I have a Paypal account - do you? If not I'd trust you to honour the deal. If you want to send me a PM with your address I'll pick up the lens before I leave here today - assuming it's still there. I'm off on holiday tomorrow so I'll have to get one of my family to post it for me. I'll include the receipt and if you can add whatever the postage cost is as shown on the package then that's fine.
Jamie
