    Not sure if this has been raised before, but srsmicrosystems are flogging the olympus 60mm macro for £399 with £7 delivery.

    Not bought from them before but I understand that they sell uk sources products not grey imports, and most people seem happy with them?

    Seems to be selling for about £440-450 elsewhere, so not a bad price.

    Ill let you all know how it pans out...

    They're an excellent shop, I've bought quite a few things from them (including my G3) and they've always been very helpful. Definitely a bricks-and-mortar outfit, based in Watford high street.

    Bought my e-pl3 and Oly 45mm from them early this year, great genuine camera shop that also have good online prices.

    I got my 60mm with no issues from srs as promised - will definitely use them again if needed.

    The 60mm is a sickeningly good lens. Macro capability is beautiful, and I've taken some pretty decent mid telephoto shots with it too. Very sharp, but not overly so if you know what i mean. Although you probably don't need a GAS crazed stranger spurring you on, you should definitely get it for £389!!!

    Can't comment on the price of the lens, but my experience with SRS's support was negative. They were disinterested and unhelpful.

    Mine is on the way from Bristol Cameras - they even phoned me re the order and I have arranged a different day for a special delivery - very positive so far - but then the lens hasn't arrived yet :)
