You know how it is, you ponder and contemplate the purchase of the next lens, you make the decision - then find that your plans fall away? Decided that I was going to get a 18-200vr on an upcoming trip to Washington DC - thought that I'd get one delivered to the hotel. Seems that because I live in UK, that sort of transaction is far too risky. Then I find out that there are none to be had anyway. Anyone any ideas? I could possibly find someone to take a parcel in, but as I'm going on a business trip that could look a bit tacky - and I'd still have the same billing not the same as the shipping address. Anyone know of a store in the DC area that has stock? Thanks for looking (and hopefully help!).
