Thank you, Ivan.

I'll keep an eye out and give the lens a good run-through. I'll check the aperture and see how it looks. If it needs a fix, I'll ship it to Kriss by way of Eric Hendrickson.

Excellent! We're back on track. Here's the current status and list (updated to reflect Ivan receiving the lens in a few days.)

ivanvernon - USA (Currently has the lens)
K David - USA
Kriss - USA
vagrown - USA
Pepperberry Farm - USA
Updated list as of 08/12/2015

NOTES:

(1) It will be helpful for each person on the list to PM their address to the person on the list immediately above them.
(2) Watch for sticky shutter syndrome, and if the majority thinks it is needed, we can make arrangements for CLA.

K David - USA Lens is with K David right now 8/12/15
Kriss - USA
vagrown - USA
Pepperberry Farm - USA
Outis - USA

I want in on this! Let me take the 50mm for a spin!

I sent Otis a PM with my address. Looking forward to being apart of this.

PS: I am in the USA near Saint Louis MO. Whoever is next after me, if you are near by I can meet up with you for a coffee and had off this beautiful lens. Maybe we can get a shot together too.

N/M. The 50 arrived today. Looks good and functions well. The blades aren't having any issues at all.

P.S., I felted part of the inside of the lens hood to heighten its glare prevention even more. I left the last 0.25-inch naked to prevent felt creep on full frame images.

Blacknight, are you up to shipping to Australia when done? I can understand if you want to keep it domestic. :-)

Big welcome to clackers!

The traveling nifty fifty is absolutely an international project. Personally, I think it is a nice idea to encourage participation within any country where the lens is currently located to reduce total travel time and costs, and in that connection it has just now had a nice U.S. run. If any member has difficulty with international shipping, please PM me and I will try to make some kind of adjustment and accommodation to keep the lens rolling along.

Big thanks to K David for felting the hood. I am glad to hear that the shutter anomalies I noticed seem not to be recurring.

@clackers

I don't mind shipping I just want to make sure I can find a safe and affordable shipping method. PM me your address and I will see what I can find.

Thanks to clackers' email efforts, I'd like to add my name to the list in Oz. The original Nifty Fifty passed through here some time ago, so I'd be happy to pass some Southern Australian light through this one, too.

Cheers
Rob
