It's been a while... Has the lens arrived yet?
No, not yet. I'm getting quite concerned. I've been tracking it on the Slovenia Post Office site, but the last event was logged on 17 Feb as "departed to destination country".

They told me it might be like that... It seems the parcel did get a new TN after being sent out.
Holy crap, if this gets lost on me...
Well, let's hope it's just stuck somewhere temporarily...

Tried all the carriers on that site - none of them recognise the tracking number.

I made enquiries with our local post office and they said it has not yet been received but that I should check again on Wednesday next week as there is a backlog due to strike action.

The South African Post Office tracking site has at last picked up the parcel! Now we wait to see how long it will take to clear customs and get delivered to me.

I'm pleased to report that today I picked up the travelling nifty 50 from my local post office!

It looks in good nick, but I haven't had a chance to attach it to my camera yet. I hope to get some shots with it in the next few days and then send it off to the next person on the list.

I haven't had a chance to take any shots yet, but will do over the weekend. In the meantime, I sent a PM to PabloFP (next on the list) yesterday, but I have not yet had a reply from him.

You DO know you can keep the lens for more than one day, right?

Woke up this morning and saw this great view - used the famous travelling nifty 50 to capture it!

I've just received a PM from PabloFP that he has withdrawn from the list, so I have sent a PM to ballhog, the next person on the list. I was wondering if I could hang onto the lens a little longer, as I will be taking a road trip from Durban to Cape Town on Wednesday and Thursday and will be there for the Easter weekend, so I should get some cool shots on the trip. If I have heard from ballhog by then, I can ship it out to him from Cape Town. Otherwise, I am driving from Cape Town to the Kruger National Park where I will be staying for another week before coming home. Obviously some very nice photo opportunities can be grabbed there!
