no mate, I only recieved the lens, rear lens cap, minolta front cap and a "kitstar" filter. I dont know what jsherman left with the lens, but I sure didnt recive it.
It wasn't there when I got the lens either. The Minolta cap isn't that big a deal and the filter protects the lens in transit if nothing else. The important thing is the lens and some pics from all around the world! The most traveled lens in photographic history! Think about them apples. I've never heard of Canikon guys doing something like this, let's keep our focus guys, hehe, get it? Keep our focus:-).

When I had the lens, if I recall correctly, it had a plain front and rear caps.

Someone should check the state of the glass, if no-one has recently, too.

...and I've yet to post my photos - procrastinated too long on which to include, so I'll have to urge myself back onto it.

Cheers

I was I believe the 1st recipient of what jsherman left in the box:

QuoteOriginally posted by jsherman999 Quote
When you open the box, take care to look at the 'bottom', opposite side of the
label, below the bubble wrap - I put a little traveling companion in the box with the fifty!
Just so you folks feel better, it was not h/w. I think jsherman just wanted it to keep traveling with the lens - unfortunately looks like it's lost it's way
The filter was not there when I rcvd it so someone after me graciously provided it.

Why aren't people adding info to their photos. Add your name, location (city, country) and then geotag it. The flickr site just looks like random photos taken from anywhere which defeats the purpose of it travelling around the world and documenting it's experiences.

I have to admit it has seemed to stalled a little since hitting the US. I think Seamus has the lens these days. hopefully it will start moving again

Okay, I've updated as well as I can. I propose sending to Pentaxperson next, as Austin is the closest to Tucson. Not sure if we want to go east through the U.S., then back west through Canada (hitting Hawaii after that) or if I should go up to B.C. so it can hit Calgary and then down to Texas, moving north and south as it makes it's way east. What do you all think? I will be sending out on Monday, I don't have much time to shoot during the week. Saturday will be my big day!

Could someone put me in the line please?
I'm from Poitiers / France. Thanks.

I have a 50 1.7 myself, but it's interesting to participate in a project like this one.
Should we call Guinness for a new record? ^^
