I cannot see any gain in cost reduction right now, or am I missing something?
Can you --if cheaper-- send it directly to the adress I will PM you?
DHL charges 8.60€ from Germany to most locations in Europe (except... ahem, Switzerland), that's slightly less expensive than the initially quoted shipping costs.
Seems negligible, especially since you need additional packaging material for each.
However, if there are a couple of members within one country, a relay can become reasonable. Within Germany, e.g., there are a couple of options, the cheapest being Hermes with ~4€ per small box.

I'm also interested if you can send the lens directly to Greece.

Thank you in advance

I am sorry to get back on line so late today after the holiday weekend. I needed to get a bit of rest and back on my feet after the Art Show today.

I have updated the listing of members wanting the lens at this point and I believe that we are now up to 12 interested in my ordering the lenses.

Sunnking still has 75 of the lenses left. I think that I will make my offer on Thursday instead of tomorrow. This will give a little more time for any members to still come forward before I make my offer to make the purchase.

A question comes to mind though, should I order a few extra for any stragglers that want a lens or should I just order the number for each member that has expressed interest?

That is entirely up to you. It would be coming out of your own pocket. And you would be stuck with them if there are no stragglers. What is the benefit of ordering extra? Saving on the combines shipping?

That is my main concern that I could be out the cost of possibly 2 extra lenses. But, the benefit could be to anyone outside the US that wants a lens and particularly once all of the lenses have been sold.

You've got a point, Rich.
Be aware for hoarders, once they discover this JML 20X turns out to be a populair lens.
See what happened with the famous Nikon CFI's, prices went almost tenfold.

No worries yet though, they still seem to have a boatload, and who knows what's in stock after this batch.


..can't hardly wait for it to arrive...
=P~

As an update, we are now up to 14 lenses to be ordered and I plan to make the offer tomorrow. So if you have not informed me yet, please get your requests in so that I place an order for a sufficient number of lenses.

Can I just say a big "thank you" from across the Atlantic. It is very thoughtful of you to organise this.

When you take your time to read this thread:

You'll find that it has an RMS thread and can be mounted on a bellows (222mm extension, if I read correctly).

Thierry,

I have put you down with a question mark. Please confirm your interest and I will remove the question mark and you would have the 16th lens. Again, I plan to place the order tomorrow.
