What happened?

I tried lookin AD-OM adapter.

Many for something like £5 but shipping is £15.

Ridiculous!

Sounds like the real shipping cost is being hiked by the vendor. A small parcel weighing between 251g and 500g (which should easily cover one adapter) sent within the EU by tracked/signed service is listed by Royal Mail at £10.15. By 'Standard' service (no signature/tracking) it's only £5.50. If the package were 250g or less, then the prices fall to £8.70 and £3.95 respectively.

Those are rip off prices. I can get an Adaptall to OM adapter tomorrow from the camera fair for next to nothing and post it for actual costs. I'll get one, if you don't want it I've got a bunch of Tamrons so it won't go to waste.
