Easy train ride to Watford on the Overground from Richmond....

That hire list is lacking unfortunately - if Chris could find a way of supplementing this with the longer FA* (where available used) and teh forthcoming DA560 I'll be knocking on his door for my upcoming bird photodays.........

Of course if you wanted one for a little longer there is the option of buying it on eBay and selling it on. You can find it works out cheaper.

Hi Maggie, I have one that I am thinking of selling. Lovely lens that can can achieve some really creative images as you probably know!
It comes with pentax front cap, tamron (pentax fit) rear cap and a pentax lens pouch. It is in excellent condition and had only light use since I purchased it around June last year.
As for price, I am asking for £275 to include delivery by rmsd. please pm me if you are interested. I have purchased from other members on this forum with no problems at all (although I have not yet sold anything)

yes, it is the SMC DA Fisheye 1:3.5 - 4.5 10-17mm ED (IF)

I would be willing to let you have a 'try before you buy week' as long as you were ok to pay postage costs.

The lens is good fun and in the right hands would produce cracking images.
