I believe Tas should be next. You could try contacting him.
I did. Tas opted out, and suggested it should go overseas (see post #383).

So who would like the lens next? As Tas and KrisK10D indicated the lens should probably head off to other parts of the world after its long holiday in Australia.

Then either HouseOfHorla or jsherman999. Wherever it lands next, it'll probably spend some time on that continent, to cut delivery costs.

Hong Kong is the closest country with someone on the list. And it's on the way to Euro from Aust.

On a straight line, yes.
But I can also receive from UK or other european country and send "back" again to another european country.
Let's give this lens a tour in Europe

Shipping from UK to me it's the same cost (at least on ebay ) that ship to other european country.

Hell yeah it would!

I wish I could give netuser the lens personally. But that would make shipping cost ~$700 :ugh:
