Fair enough question. I contacted Adorama first simply because I was able to easily get a hold of Helen Oster. I honestly don't know who I could get a hold of at B&H so easily that I thought could take an immediate interest in this.

I'll have some more information in a couple of hours.

I have somebody's ears. Now waiting.......

The first step, I think, is for one of you to set up a Paypal account.

I will be back when I have an update.

Derek, very cool of you to step and organize this. If Helen/Adorama can work something out, even better.

I've followed this from the very beginning of the thread, and have nothing but admiration for Bucketman. Doing the right thing isn't always the same as doing the easy thing. You've got my respect.

I'm definitely gonna chip in on the fund when I get home from work tonight.

Pekka this is one of those great stories that should make its way into the POTN book.

As I mentioned somewhere on page 1/2, I'm in.
My donation has been sent!

If we don't get a f/2.8 together, maybe we can still achieve the f/4 IS...
