To better keep track of it, it'd be great if the next person in line to use the lens (in this case, flickeroo) can post a quick message indicating when they've received it, that way we're not all left in the dark as to its whereabouts.

Here's the most updated list then. I think it's accurate, but if someone sees something not quite right with it, please correct:

Nice to meet you Eddie

Flickeroo, if you could pass on the log in details of the flickr account (as numerous people seem to forget), to the next lens recipient that would be great... when you get them.

I think they should rename this thread "The Disappearing Nifty Fifty"
Haven't seen updates since forever...?

Uhoh....Has the lens gone AWOL? Maybe it met a pretty vintage Pentax camera along the way it couldn't bear to leave and finally decided to settle down? You watch we're going to get a set of pics of the lens on a camera now and the picture will include a half empty bottle of champagne, a couple of half full glasses, and some confetti....

The last known person to have it is Flickeroo, back on June 4. It's been M.I.A. ever since.

Flickeroo, have you sent the Fifty on to the next person? If so, when and to whom? Any news whatsoever would be helpful.
