The $199 charge from B&H has already hit my online banking, though no news yet from them directly....

B&H shows mine in the warehouse. I expect to have it for this weekend.

Thanks, CR.

Roger at LensRentals says the 40 is surprisingly excellent in his testing!

$199 = £229 UK

Can't be bothered working out the difference after tax, too depressing

I bought one as I felt it was worth it. In the UK you pay the UK price and that is the price that I judged it on.

I suspect this will be a classic lens, especially on a 1.6 crop
