I put in my post that I hope that people keep it a max of 2 weeks and that I was hoping it would be on its way to Europe by sometime in June I know you have been waiting patiently now for almost 2 years in some cases

Post a picture of the lens and caps on here please, with serial number (for the projects sake)

It would be nice if everything is kept intact.

Quick confirmation that the lens is on it's way to me via Gokenin.

In the interest of expediency, I'm going to pass it on to steVo_k200d from this list:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/1003084-post600.html

as he's geographically the closest to me.

Should have thought of that shouldn't I before sealing it and taking it to the post office maybe Jeff can do that when he gets the items.

I wanted to update the list of people which I have done to include the new people that have posted recently.We are going to continue the travels of the NiftyFifty with my lens taking the place of our wayward lens. I would however like to place some suggestions about the lens

1) since this is a travel log of the lens I think one of the shots should be a location shot i.e. your cities welcome sign or something like that

2) that the thread is updated with when you are shipping the lens out and to whom it is going, and if possible letting us know it gets there as well

3)That when you have taken pictures that we update the Flicr account something that has been lacks because the password went missing but I have it so when you are have the lens email me and I will give you the password

4) I would like if possible to keep the lens moving so would like to limit it to a 2 week max per holder I am hoping that the lens will make it you Europe sometime in June?

I will be sending the lens out to someone in Canada within the next few days and will post when I ship it. Please feel free to comment and make suggestions. Think this is a good 1000th post
Very cool I'm happy to see I made the list, oh and when it ever gets to me, I'm going to set up a good shoot with one of my favorites local glam/fashion models, this will be fun! I have some locations in mind......Thanks

Interesting that Ireland beats UK 4 to 1. I am sure the nationalist love that.

well well well, glad to see this project is still going strong. keep it up people. I hadn't checked up on this thread in a while, but now that I think of it, is it just me or has the lens reached far fewer people in this time than it should have?
cheers

Count me in when this gets to Europe (especially when it gets to Cork)!

Hopefully it doesn't get stuck with the volcanic ash clouds slowing down the transport.
