    Well since retiring all I do all day is search for stuff I can't really afford and don't really need. I think the main reason I come on here is to find stuff that I haven't thought of buying yet.
    But I did find some good deals at Henry's used. A Oly 17 f/1.8 for 349. and a PL 25 f/1.4 for 383. The 17mm had a condition rating of 8.5 but was like new and very sharp, plus you get 90 day warranty. The 25mm was 8.5 too and in great shape.

    Cheers

  2. I already pulled the trigger, so I'll find out soon enough, but do these have any sort of webbing loops for securing?

    I'm hoping to attach mine to the bottom of my LowePro bum bag, which has two straps below, intended for a tripod.

    The LowePro Lens Case #4 has nylon webbing attached in such a way that I can securely attach it to the bottom of the bum bag, but it's a soft-sided case, and I don't like having having an expensive lens on the bottom where it's going to be hitting hard surfaces every time I take the bum bag off.

    I just bought a Novoflex Castel L focusing rail from Amazon.ca for 249.99. It's 379.99 at Henry's and 339.20 CAN at B+H. Thought is was a pretty good price.

    Cheers

  5. Nope. :-(

    But my spouse is really good with needle and thread. :) 

    I really wish they had put a simple strip of nylon webbing up the side. Stitched in four places, it could have made two securing points at top and bottom (like I want) and a handle in the middle.

    But for C$9.99 (less 20% at the time!), I'm not complaining. I paid twice that much for the soft-sided LowePro Lens Case #4 from China, which was half of its retail value.

    BTW: they are still C$9.99 on the Canada site, still an incredible deal for anyone wanting hard-sided lens cases… or you can pay US $24.99 on the US site, if you'd rather.
