A bit of a specialist offer here.. But really cheap for what it is...

High-performance super-telescopic zoom lens that features for the first time the SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) autofocusing system and covers a zoom range equivalent to 100 to 400 mm of a 35 mm camera lens. ED lens elements are used extensively to correct the color blurring that can occur when telescopic lenses are extended to their maximum focal length, while the digital-dedicated design ensures high-definition performance with clear, crisp images from edge to edge. Close-up shooting capability is also superb, with a minimum shooting distance of just 1.2 meters throughout the zoom range.

The photo of the lens on the web site is the older, non SWD, version.
This lens is the New version.

Quidco also available..

Don't forget Argos still offering £10 voucher for over£100 purchase (ends today 18th.)

If you're not interested in the Cheapest deal for this lens, don't vote cold, as others might be interested...

Cheers guys.. (Bet these will end up on fleabay for over £600.)

I'm not an Olympus man myself, however this is hot as the cheapest i can find it on camerapricebuster is £668.98.

That's a really good price for this very fast f2.8 lens. Hot.

So with the £10 voucher from Argos, £7.50 from Quidco, and now £40 from Oly

The description on the Argos web site says 'SWD' but he picture is of the old non SWD model.
Excellent price for a new SWD model .
OK'ish price for an old discontinued model.

SWD = Supersonic Wave Drive

I think all the E series from Olympus supports this lens..

I have the E-510.

It is a big heavy lens, but lighter than the equivalent on other camera makes.:thumbsup:

Well that is a bargain so I've ordered one :-D
If by any chance it does turn out to be the old model they have a 30 money back guarentee so it's no risk really.
Great news about the £40 cash back - very nice bonus :w00t:

One question - does Argos use it's own delivery service or the Royal Mail?

Not sure about the delivery company.
It was booked for delivery between 12 and 6pm. But arrived at 8.30am....LOL (36 hrs from ordering)
The OH took delivery, says Argos Direct ............Next Day
