    I've decided to get the Olympus 45mm 1.8...

    My only question is that the US centric blogs/websites/forums are full of the promise of black Friday deals, but apart from amazon uk, does anyone know of any uk companies that will be doing the same?

    I was underwhelmed by amazon's deals last year, so I'm inclined to just go and get it....

    Do the folks in the UK celebrate our Thanksgiving, (the day before black Friday)? :smile:

    I think it's buy now or wait for the New Year sales. If I had the money I'd buy now. :smile:

    Not really and to be honest I only heard of black Friday a couple of years ago. Amazon did do some good deals last year but they had like 2 of anything at the sale price..

    I dithered last week when wilkinsons had one left at £229, and it went. Phoned them today about when they might get some more and got the same intake of breath a mechanic gives you before saying it's a tricky (expensive) bit of work on your car...

    Have you tried SRS? I got mine from there a couple of weeks ago and they're still showing it at £239 - I think you'll have a long wait on one appearing in any kind of sale, especially in the UK.

    Derek thanks, I think I will just go get it from SRS, it's a good price and they're a good dealer.

    I'd be surprised if that lens was offered as a Black Friday deal. In my area the biggest deals on that day aren't usually current models of anything.

    Well I ordered, then got the out of stock notice. I know they're not a massive shop, but a little disappointing.

    I've cancelled for now, and will keep my eye back to wilkinson cameras, otherwise I am going to be a hermit to the 45mm image thread until focus next march :biggrin:
