Bargain 8mm FE

A quick heads-up in case anyone is in the market for one of these

I saw a Currys Megastore clearance advert in AP last week so I popped along to the Croydon store to see if I could get my hands on an 8mm f/3.5 fish-eye as I used to enjoy using my OM 16mm f/3.5 FE on film cameras. They had one left at a bargain 349 as against a RRP of 799 (Park Cameras have them at 689 on their web site). Hopefully, this wasn't the last one in the country and other Currys stores will have some left if others are interested

A slightly late Xmas present to myself

Cheers,

JohnGG

They are also advertising the FL-50R at 279.97, and the EP-1 with 14-42 at 309.99.

Gutted the lens isn't listed. Tried calling them but they only have 2 zuiko lenses listed :-(

Re: Bargain 8mm FE

Sorry for the slow reply, I tried to post the other night but the site didn't seem to respond for some reason

I visited the store on Monday at about 5pm and I got the last one in the store. The young lady who served me said that they had several sitting around for months before the clearance offer came up without any takers!

Commiserations Bill and Garrie for missing out, I feel rather lucky to have managed to grab such a bargain

Cheers,

JohnGG

Re: Bargain 8mm FE

I went to the Curry's Superstore at Lakeside, Thurrock yesterday.

They have at least: -

1 Nr FL-50R (they did have two but I bought one) 280
1 Nr 11-22mm (think the price was circa. 450)
1 Nr 40-150mm MK2

I didn't see any 8mm fisheyes but wasn't looking specifically for one.

The kit was all in a glass case near the entrance on the left hand side by the techguys stand.
