    A bit surprising, but it now appears to be out of stock!

    It accepted my payment at about 1.30 and I've received an email confirming etc. It's currently listed at £285 on the Wex site, I thought it must be a mistake. :confused:

    That's unfortunate. :(

    It seems to have been removed completely from the website.

    Tim, I'm sure I remember all the kerfuffle of the Amazon selling stock for a penny the other week that if they had taken the money from your account then they had to by law honour the price whether it was a mistake or not as a contract has been entered into. Therefore their refusal to supply maybe illlegal if you wanted to persue it.

    Thanks Paul. They are sending me (and others) a £10 goodwill gift token and I accept that mistakes happen. I think they probably intended to price it at £239 showing a £50 reduction over it's normal price which is still a great buy from what I understand of the lens. I have the XF 18-55 anyway but couldn't resist a 'bargain' like that when I saw it.

    I thought it was too good to be true!
