Help Finding A B-300 :(

Hi folks,

Numerous places have stopped selling the B-300, I'm under the impression that Olympus have discontinued it (everyone keeps saying so, but then shops get them back in stock again). I've searched the internet... twice! but still no dice.

If anyone knows where I can find one still for sale, preferably in the UK I'd really like to know!

Thanks

Dan

For $220 you can buy my slightly used B-300 + stepup ring (49-55mm). I'll pay for shipping. Send me a mail if you're interested.

Hi all,

thanks for the information. Lee - I said in my email they are temp. out of stock but apparently not so, its just a bug in the script... so that'll be where I get it from!!!!

Tony, i've seen your results, stunning Big grin.

Shaun - get it from the place Lee mentioned, its expensive (jessops sold em for £140) but its just about the only place left!

Ben - that comes next year, WITH the B-300 Big grin

Hi all

I got my B300 for my previous digital at Ask Electronics in the UK.

http://www.askdirect.co.uk/

They might still have them.
