Darren,
How much is the 31mm in Taiwan?

Which city is the Camera Road in?

Thanks,
Calvin

Any black 77's in Taiwan, Darren?

I have seen them here quite often, yes. I believe there is a
slight premium for black, as they are not brought in through normal
channels. I will likely be in the area tomorrow, I will have
another look. I do know the silver is more common though.

Thanks

Hi Lance. Just to let you know. I was in my normal camera shop
here in Taipei tonight. They had at least 3 of the 77mm Limited
lenses in stock, one of which was black. They also had the 43 and
the 31, not so sure about the colors. Out of interest, they had at
least 4-5 16-45s, 5 or so 14mm and both the 50 f/1.7 and 1.4. I
noticed at least two 85mm f/1.4s as well as teh 24 f/2, 20 f/2.8,
the fisheye zoom, 24-90 and others as well. We are pretty well
stocked here, and this is one of the smaller stores on Camera Road.

The 77mm were selling for $20 000nt in black and $19 000nt in
silver. These prices translate to about $592usd and $562usd
respectively.
