Thank you very much Noel and Alvin! This is a very cool project and I hope more Pentaxians get to join and use the lens.

Actually the lens is currently somewhere between Philippine customs and Australian customs I think but after 1 stop in Australia it's headed to the US/CAN. Hopefully it can resurface soon and we can continue the project.

Hopefully I will send out PM's to those on the list from the US/CAN today but I'm pretty lazy.

A few weeks back I sent a private message to Kirk (current caretaker of the project) that there seems to be some problem with the lens in the Philippine Post Office or Customs. The lens was sent from Singapore to the Philippines on the last week of November and arrived there a few days after, as seen from the tracking in the registered mail. But after 2 months of waiting for the lens, wed7 (recipient from the Philippines) and I still could not locate the lens.

So I am now trying to get a replacement lens from the second hand market here in Singapore. So we can get the project back on track. Please be patient though. Once I am able to buy a copy of the A 50mm f1.7, I'll send the lens to Kirk to Taiwan and let him decide where the lens should go next. Thank you.

I really wish I can do something about this, but the customs/postal service in our country were still clueless about the item as I made a follow up call on them on a weekly basis. :c

My apologies too.

Too bad about the Nifty Fifty. This one had a good run, as I started it off on New Year's Day 2011.

Hope you can get it restarted soon.

Kudos for making the effort and keeping the project up to date.
I think the last time it went AWOL we never heard from the last person who should have received it, so this is good.

I'm meeting someone on Sunday to buy his A 50mm f1.7, hopefully it turns out good; then we can continue the project. I believe this is a very special project that should go on until there are Pentaxians who will support it.

I'm hoping that the lens turns up in the Philippines sometime but it sounds like we'll be up and running soon with lens #4 and that (lens #3) can be a spare.

We're always looking for more participants to jump in so just post in this thread and I'll add you to the list.
