Irecently purchased from EBay a 12-60 lens that had been dropped: though optically OK the motor was not functioning correctly.

The lens has now just been received back from Olymups after a seven day holiday to Portigal and is fully revitalised and functioning 100%.

Sometimes these sort of things work out just right, but it is a risk. Thanks to Olympus and an honest EBayer I now have a perfect, fully serviced and warranted 12-60 lens at a crazy price.

So I am now looking to sell my Sigma 18-50 f2.8 and possibly the 11-22.

the 12-60 is the lens...always in use... but the 11-22 is nicer at the wide end IMHO...

The 11-22 or 12-60 both fine lenses. Thankfully I have both,although in my opinion the 11-22 would go before the 12-60,it really is a terrific lens.

Olympus have a standard 138 inc vat price and the service is fantastic, 7 days door to door!
