My lens finally arrived this week while i was on vacation. They are all in there and appear to be undamaged, and i need to do some more testing but so far appear to match the already posted results of being a few percent lower in blue/green vs authentic G2 but 10 percent or so better with reds.
Got mine from the post office earlier today. Put a little teflon tape around one since my heatsink's threads are a tiny bit wider.
Usual delays as expected from the local PO. Tracking indicated that the lenses arrived in the country on the 9th, but I decided to wait until they sent the usual pickup notice, which arrived on the 22nd, and indicated a Sept. 16 issue date. Hahaha.
Thanks a lot to Paul & Eitan, and to the other participants who also made this one possible!
Rifter ans TomD, thank you guys for your participation which made all this possible. I thought everyone had received their lenses by now, but it seems that there are a few in other countries than the USA that are still receiving their lenses. If you are not aware of it, we are running a new group buy that is for some newly machined hosts with a copper heat sink option, or aluminum heat sink. If anyone is interested check it out.
