    Wex had an 'open box 40 ~ 150 at the weekend, priced £1,099 I think.

    I was sorely tempted but thankfully somebody else beat me to it.

    He said that was the initial shipment for the UK; I suspect that the cost might have had something to do with that!

    With the lens & converter in short supply I wonder if anybody has tried to make a profit on them. Love mine would not part with them.

    I changed from a Canon 5D III with lots of lenses and have had no regrets whatsoever!

    It's only saying 'Pre-order' on their web site.

    Still no sign of my pre-order coming through (with MC-14) - frustrating! And my Giffords Circus voucher's 90 days are up soon

    According to the helpful chaps at LCE here there are now lenses around for the taking, but the lens+converter kits are rather like what comes out of the eastern end of a westbound rocking-horse. They have a few kits and I hope my name is on one, as there won't be any new deliveries until January.
