ok it looks like its settled then we are shipping to original lens over to Netuser to jumpstart to European leg of the voyage. To the Canadians I say use the replacement lens till all over Canada gets it and the last one up there sends it to Ibam so that he will get at least one of the A50s back. Please continue to post pictures on the flickr page from the Canada pics as well please.

I think I should be in the list, Deni - Albania (I guess I'm the only one from Albania).

Any idea when I might get it?

I wanted to update the list of people which I have done to include the new people that have posted recently. 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

sorry that I have let the milage portion of the thread slack but I do not have access to the zip codes in order to get the milage figured out if any of these users want to adjust the miles let me know or you can simply add to the thread

Lens is ON the Island

Just received the custom form so I think they will let me have it later today.

If I have it today I expect to ship to other Pentaxian by next Friday.

If that happens I will check the list and Pm someone (or someones) let's see you answers back to me faster

I was out of the country and so did not reply so quickly. Robbiec and I will likely meet in person, possibly with others from this side of Ireland. So if any of you are out there, let us know!
