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

Looking forward to getting this. I had forgotten about the lens for a while there. Very excited that it will arrive here. I'll ship it on very quickly to whomever is next in line. Fantasic project.
Any update have you heard from anyone on the list as to who you are shipping it to next?

not yet - but then i have not messaged anyone yet. I gather that I'm the last of the Irish so it's away off either UK or Europe.

Do I take it in order of the list published above?

cheers

there are not set rules I have always advocated that one try to send it to someone close to them to keep the travel time down but other than that its completely up to you. Yes you take it from the list above I don't know if the user in Dublin got to use it? Then there is the person in England which I the two I would try first.

38 people have had the lens in the 19 months since this started. That's exactly two people a month. But I only had the lens for a couple of hours.

With 48 people left this will all be over in July 2012.

Well folks, the lens arrived with me today. I'll get out for a walk around my local area after my daughter has gone to bed and start the Wicklow leg of the tour.

I see this topic for the first time now, and although I have another copy of this lens, I'd love to have a go with this very special specimen! What a great idea

Brand spanking new Traveling Nifty Fifty web page.

I created this page to store the basic info participants need to know about this project. Sure beats reading 700 forum posts! I hope this serves the project well over the next months and years.

Please pardon my interuption but I was hoping to start a sort of companion thread to this one with another lens.
I have a JC Penny 28-80mm f3.5 I would like to offer up for this same sort of treatment but I really would not care to manage it. If someone will offer to see up a thread and perhaps an online photo diary display much like the 50's treatment, I will mail the lens to any address in the U.S. or Canada to get this going.
I put the lens in the forum database some weeks ago so you can look at what it has to offer. This lens was graciously given to me by another forum member some time ago and I have really enjoyed using it. I have others in this focal range that I prefer so I would like to start a traveling lens thread and online photo album with it if there is great interest AND someone else will do the paperwork and managing.
Send me a personal message and then post here so I do not risk getting too many requests. Unless I am being presumptuous.

I just thought I'd pop in and say hi guys..

Gokenin, thanks for your continued stewardship of this project... Cheers!

Have you REALLY not had the lens yet? I don't want to mess up any current list, but I hope you get it at some point.

Having said this, it's fantastic to see the lens in Europe.

Robin, thanks for creating the web page, I have edited the first post to include a link to it.
