    These will be split from a kit, bought a Fuji lens from them that was similarly advertised

    I'm not a fan of Bristol Cameras, too often they don't have stock and it's always best to ring and check before buying.

        Maybe it is, but these reviews show its not only me that has found them to be a bit unreliable https://www.google.com/search?client...ol%2520Cameras

          After buying my new camera on here a couple of weeks ago, I ordered the MM3 adapter from Bristol Cameras and it was here in two days.

          I can't fault their service.

            My one and only experience with them was disappointing and that was eleven years ago.
            They still seem to be the lottery that they were back then.

              I got good prices from them years ago on a couple of lenses, but they didn't hold stock. I got them fairly quickly from memory. I don't think they generally hold stock.

                I have dealt with them twice previously with no problems..as I recall.

                  I've just ordered one of the last two at that price. We'll see if it turns up! Thanks for the heads up anyway Dave.

                    You are most welcome, I was amazed at the price, half of what Amazon were asking.

                    Did you read the blurb, it's worth it.......

                    Mine was dispatched yesterday, Wednesday, they even sent me a tracking number.
                    Should be with me by the weekend they say....watch this space

                      ...and I've ordered the last one.

                      Funny though - it's still showing two available!

                      Will report back when it's arrived and I've finished playing.

                        I'm taking 'Last two at this price' with a pinch of salt, you are the third to purchase from here

                          It's just arrived, less than 24 hours from placing the order so I can't fault that service. It's not boxed with no warranty cards so as Tram suggests is probably split from a kit, but I don't need the box. With luck I won't need the warranty either!

                          First impressions are a cheap nasty plasticky feel but it seems to work OK and is very compact. I did read the blurb, very promising. I'd been hovering over the Oly 14-42 pancake for months but wanted the extra couple of mm at the wide end so this fits the bill. More when I've had a chance to use it in earnest.

                          They still have the last two .

                            Interestingly there are two versions of the 12-32. One has a metal mount, the other plastic. I've had both. The metal "feels" higher quality but I'm sure that apart from the mount they are identical. I think on balance I prefer the plastic mount actually - it mounts much more easily on the camera. For such a small lens I've got no issue with the durability of the plastic.

                              I'm sure it's as durable as the Oly 40-150 which to me feels similarly plasticky. It just doesn't feel nice!
