12-40mm F2.8 Pro.

Bought this as part of an EM1 kit last year and have hung onto it in the expectation that using it would 'grow on me".

The two or three times it's been out, it hasn't really done it for me - I just prefer primes I guess. So, finally, with a 60mm Macro in my sights and a 75mm recently arrived to join my wide-angles it's up for sale.

Always had a filter on it and genuinely only been out three times at most. Comes with filter, hood and soft-case (no box - the kit box doesn't have inner boxes strangely).

Asking 445 o.no. including RMSD.

Obviously happy to hear any offers before it goes to eBay and the fees kick in :-)

I thought you might have had some interest, the lens works for many of us including me. Hope someone come along soon.

Re: 12-40mm F2.8 Pro.

you look for one and two come along in a week. If this was advertised last week I would have bought it but one came up on Monday and I bought that.
Great lens, should sell easily. Best of luck

Not everyone checks in daily so give it a few days.

Re: 12-40mm F2.8 Pro.

Hmm.... I want one but have just gone for the 40-150 pro so will need to grovel a lot or sell something to convince SWIMBO it's a necessary addition sorry Andy. This gets you back on top of the page at least. If I can decide what to sell before you sell it I'll get back to you.

Re: 12-40mm F2.8 Pro.

Guess I'll put this back in the cupboard for the time being as it's all getting a little busy with 12-40's for sale at the moment. Thanks for the messages all.

Re: 12-40mm F2.8 Pro.

If this is still for sale I would be interested and would offer 400 inc postage. Don't know if that would be acceptable to you?
