Are Lehmans still in business?

I sent a lens of to Lehmans about 6 weeks ago and haven't heard a thing. I've filled out their enquiry form, sent emails and tried calling. They haven't replied to form/emails and the phone just rings and rings. I don't fancy driving 200 miles to see if they're still their. Anyone dealing with them at the moment - know if they're still around. I'm very concerned . . . they've got my favourite lens.

I sent a camera off a few months ago and all was fine. Although when ringing them it took a while for them to answer. Perhaps you could contact Canon to ask them if they are ok as they tell you to send gear there.

Thanks Smithy. At least it looks like someone is there to turn the answerphone on after hours. I've left a message and hopefully hear from them.

I spoke to them today, also spoke to Canon (UK) who confirmed that all Lenhamms back order on parts have now been supplied in the last few days, so hopefully any delays will now be sorted. Smile

That's great news. I guess they're just too busy fixing stuff . . .
