But the way I understood his post, he wants to send HIS fifty on a route like this in a few years...?
Sorry if I misunderstood.
No, sorry. I wasn't clear enough there. What I meant was, I have that lens and don't use it. However I would like to have a play with the 50 that's circling the globe as it has extra significance attached to it. I'm happy to wait longer for it, or not. It's up to you guys.

Regards

Likewise, I hope the guy after me isn't in Japan when I have to send the lens
Actually I would prefer to be in Austria when the lens comes... back in my sweet home country!
So take your time guys, I don't need it before November!

I'd like to join this club, and give this nifty lens a run, next time it comes nearby. I'm living in Malaysia.

Is there a site currently dedicated to displaying photos by the traveling nifty fifty or should I display samples in this thread?

Thanks. I had found the Flickr page but I noted that the most recent contributions there appear to be 2 years old (unless I am missing something).
That got me to wondering if there was a more recent site...

I can't believe I didn't know about this. What a fantastic project/adventure.


I would love the chance to get in, Western Canada.

I made a 2nd flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/73857303@N03/ because we lost contact with the password. The password is the name of this forum and I have posted this info every month or so in this thread.

For a brief time I blogged the photos but I got too busy and after awhile people stopped sending any info with the pics.

I haven't figured out yet how to upload to the Flickr site.


Here are some photos from the Nifty-fifty from my trip to Florida and from around Durham, NC.

Nice to see this project is still going strong! I just hope there was only one flickr account for all the photos for this project.

Wouldn't a Flickr group be a better idea? Just upload the photos to your own account and add them to the group.

I guess no good for those not on Flickr.

Just an update to let you know that Kiwi_jono in New Zealand reported earlier this week that he has received the lens.
