It looks like either 30 or 36 for signed for, insured airmail package to USA & Australia etc. using the royal mails website, assuming the lens/box weighs 2 kg?:

Aside from lusting after that lovely * lens, I actually like the bedspread quite a bit too. I don't suppose you'd wrap the lens in that to mail it? Oh well, I cannot afford it at this moment anyway, but I'd sure love to buy it. Edit: "it" = the lens. In case I was confusing in my rambling....
(free bump, I guess)

I'll bump this lens. At this price, you will not find a better and sharper lens. Just don't shoot into the light and you'll have images at this focal length as good as it gets. Cheers. Don

Takes pictures sharp as a razor-tack. Couple flecks of dust inside but I can't see them even at F32. Item arrived triple boxed.

As they say on ebay: Would buy again!
