Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

Chichester PC World had two 35mm Olympus macros as at 15:00 today - Wed 7th. They have it signed with a higher price but I went next door to Curry's who listed it as 99.97, but none available. The assistant went into PC World on my behalf collected a lens and sold it to me at 99.97. PCW now have one left.

In addition the recent offers by Olympus show that the 35mm macro is on their list of 'cashbacks'. I have a goods receipt, I will register the lens this evening on their website, send the required documentation, and wait to get the 30 euros cash back. If this happens, I will have an unbelievable bargain.

Currys at Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh have an E-3 at 769 but no lens bargains. PC World at the same location said "what's an Olympus?"!

Standard digital lens. Works on all E series cameras. Good quality, for the price, with 1:1 reproduction ratio.

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

Hello

I thought I had just asked this question on this thread, but it does not seem to be there.

So here goes again

The 35mm macro lens discussed on this thread. Is it a lens which will fit onto the 510 and if so is there any special requirements to do this, adaptors etc between the camera and the lens.

Working at Bedford and the Currys there had the 40-150 and the 35mm macro.

I know someone will clarify what I am asking so thanks in advance

Ian

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

The prices at Currys South Liverpool (Speke) seem to fluctuate on weekly basis!

I recently purchased a FL36 for 120 (also picked up the FL20 for 24.99 from city centre store) but noticed it was back to 169 when I popped in on Monday. The 40-150 was priced at 79 at the time, but now back to full price as I think they may be pushing it as part of a multideal with the E600. The 70-300mm was 279 but has been reduced further to 249.

Currys city store also has the 12-60 at 549 and the E3 body at 799.

John Lewis Liverpool had the FL36 on sale for 129 on Saturday.

So tempting, but I'm already puty in my six month old daughter's hands-she only has to flash a smile and the readies are heading her way!!

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

Anyone know what a typical price for the E-600 will be?

the future price is unknown but the current price is about 550

given the current Olympus deal on the 620 this now looks unsustainable!

Re: Currys Digital/PC World cheap Zuiko glass

Hello all

Would it be possible for one of you lucky members who have been able to find and buy the 35mm macro for sale to give the 6 digit currys stock number. as a store near me will then be able to locate one in my area.if there is one. Other option if anyone sees one at the price on this thread 99 and is willing to purchase one on their credit card the cheque will be in the post ASAP to repay them and cover postage. I can not find one in my area including travel out of area with work.

I await any replies

Ian
