    Hi Bruce,

    Do you think you could e-mail me with regard to my possible acquisition
    of a Pentax SLR that we discussed here last month.

    My e-mail address is valid.

    Thanks,

    Hi Paul,

    Sorry for the delay, I have been dealing with the death of a close
    relative and haven't been able to follow this newsgroup as closely as
    usual.

    I have the 135mm lens here ready to send. Please send your postal
    address to me at docnews2011 at gmail dot com and I will try to post the
    lens before the weekend.

    Best regards,

    Bruce

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for sending me your address. The lens is on its way - I posted
    it first class this morning - in Peterborough, so I expect you will get
    it tomorrow (Thursday).

    Don't worry about the cost of postage - it cost buttons. I'm just
    pleased that the lens has gone to someone who will make good use of it.

    Best regards,

    Bruce

    Bruce,

    That is a lovely gesture but I feel quite bad because I know that you
    could have sold the lens for a few quid on ebay. Now you won't even
    accept the postage costs.

    Please, at the very least, could you let me know what your favourite
    charity is and I will make a donation to them. It would make me feel an
    awful lot better.

    Thanks once again and I promise faithfully to look after the lens and to
    try and do it justice.

    Cheers,

    Paul,

    I did offer it on eBay about 12 months ago but no takers.

    If you really must pay something, then Cancer Research would be my
    chosen charity, as my cousin died of cancer last Friday.

    Best regards,

    Bruce

    My pleasure Bruce. I've just made an online donation at
    CancerResearchUK.org

    The lens arrived today. Its in mint condition and I can't wait to get
    out this weekend and see what it can do.

    Thanks again Bruce, you're a very generous man.

    That's very kind of you, thanks.


    Not really. But it's a very good optic and I'm glad it will get used
    rather than clutter up my equipment cupboard!

    Enjoy! ;-)
