New Discount Price on Canon RF Lens Book

IF you are serious about Canon RF lenses, you NEED this book.
GREAT BOOK is a serious understatement
see edit below to contact the author

Stephen

---------------------------------
by the author:

Check out the following link for eBay sales of my book

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/111239453...84.m1558.l2649

In regards to postage cost that is something beyond my control and is a world wide hassle for all when purchasing gear from overseas.
The book once packaged weighs 1.650kgs or 3lb 7oz, check what a similar weighted parcel cost to send from your country to Australia.
For example from USA to Australia it would cost $59.95 ($66.95 AU$) via Priority Mail International® Medium Flat Rate Box.

With the current lower AUS$ to US$ your book delivered would cost you $113.72 US$ whereas one year ago it would have cost you $133.00US$.

Sorry about this rant but people think I make money on postage when in fact I subsidise it to the tune of $6.00. Book used to cost $110.00 AU$.

There is surface mail but that can take three months and cost around $30.00 AUS$.

People can email me on

[email protected]

and we can go from there.

Peter's own site isn't accessible now, but here the price seems to be lower (84$ vs 98$). I believe that the price from Peter's site is comparable or even lower.

Thumbs up Great book

Hi all,

I received Peters book just last week. It is absolutely fabulous, very well made a real beauty! I ordered directly from Peters site (it is up again). Since all books are individually numbered, he let me pick a book with a number of my choice from the pile. Nice service! Shipment to the Netherlands took only just over a week.

So, if you want to know about Canon RF lenses, buy the book!

Bart

I received my copy of Peter Kitchingman's Canon Lenses Book this week. It exceeded my expectations on all counts. The book is supremely well organized, text is well written and integrated with clear and attractive tables, and the photographs...outstanding. High quality photos of lenses, cameras, accessories abound. If you have any interest in canon lenses, this is the definitive reference and a great looking one, too.

Ok Guys and Gals or Gentlemen and Ladies to us older guys.

I have discounted my book to $60.00 per book.

Due to the Global Financial Meltdown in 2008 when the book came out plus the increase value of the Australian Dollar and also the increase of international postage worldwide , I have discounted the book

I would appreciate if anyone who wants to purchase a book, and then they go through my website at http://www.canonrangefinder.servehttp.com/?page=book

Peter

I have received Peter Kitchingman's Canon Lenses Book this afternoon. This book really worth the money and i love the hand write signs and number on the first page. It is absolutely the best choice for people who love Canon rangefinder and want to find some authoritative information.

Deeply thanks peter~

This is a GREAT book.

The first time you research a lens you bought or did not buy
you will probably make back the purchase price.

BUY IT before it sells out!

Stephen

PS buy it from Peter's site so he does not have to pay Ebay commissions!

if you want, until your server is working
just give out your email so they can contact you directly to buy.

a great book, and a real bargain at 60 dollars. I have had mine since the original issue, and refer to it quite often.

Thanks Dexdog...but alas there will not be a second or third book on Accessories or Cameras due the costs involved.

As that old saying goes

"Once bitten, twice shy"...

If ANYONE want any info on Canon RF gear they can always email me and I will reply ASAP, unless I am in the nether regions of some obscure place in this world, then time will take over.

Sorry to hear that there won't be a Canon rangefinder accessory book or Canon rangefinder book. But publishing a book can't be easy (or cheap), so I understand your decision.

Do you have plans of adding additional "chapters" to your website on both rangefinder cameras and accessories? Maybe this would be a way for us to read what you've written on the subject.

Peter, you could try using Kickstarter to fund additional projects of this sort: www.kickstarter.com
I have participated in two photo book projects so far, and it seems like a good framework.

Cheers,
Ari

Just a note that I have just received my copy of Peter's book. Beautiful object in itself, and immediately useful -- immediately resolved types and date of production of my Canon RF lenses, largely acquired as a result of the enablers on this site. You know who you are.

I contacted him directly as suggested, worked a charm.

Ouch! Website seems to no longer work, I do see one on eBay but it's damn expensive with the shipping. Is there any other way to ship that book that would lower the price? No problem paying that kind of money for a good book, but do he shipping companies really need to steal so much from us?

Hi
Sorry was away for three months walking the Camino across the top of Spain. Then the festive season and so on but now getting back to some sort of normality.
People can email me on

[email protected]

and we can go from there.

With eBay now taking a % of the postage costs it is becoming not viable to sell there as the postage to USA and EU is not cheap.

Cheers Peter

PS With the LOWER OZ Dollar NOW is a good as time as ever to purchase my book...P

Hi Peter
Are you using the Australian Dollar for main currency value , or US dollar?. As you are aware by now, our Canadian Dollar is down to which makes it more costly in purchasing in US Dollars. Would love to get your book.

Hi

Sure am using the AU$.

Odd how the CDN$ and AU$ always seem to go hand-in-hand with currency fluctuations.

If you live in CDN then I declare the book with a value of $20 AUS so as avoid some of the VAT/Tax you have to pay.

Contact me direct if you would like a copy and I will send you a request for funds from PayPal.

[email protected]

Cheers Peter

This thread galvanised me into ordering myself a copy of Peter's book. It arrived yesterday. I haven't had a chance to fully read it but the production quality is impeccable and the information within is going to be very useful.
Highly recommended.

Hello Peter!

I just received the book. I am pleasantly surprised by your autograph!

The information is very well presented. Lots of details and photos that helped me understand the lenses I am interested in. I am very happy with the purchase and will strongly recommend the book to everyone - collectors or photographers.

I only wish all the Canon RF bodies and lenses can be compiled into one big book!
