Re: Olympus Kit for sale from long standing original member :)

Sorry to put a damper on your thread, but these prices seem a bit higher than the market these days. Admittedly, the majority are with boxes, but these prices seem a little higher than Ffordes, and a lot higher than CEX ... for example.



FWIW, I'd highly recommend the 70-300 4/3 version for m4/3 bodies; and the 11-22 and 14-54 are both highly-regarded even for m4/3 with converters ...

It's better to start at a higher price; maybe John is open to offers.

I very much doubt many (if any) of these items were listed by CEX as they are relatively rare and specialist.

Better check your facts - CEX has the 11-22, 14-54, 70-300, the original 40-150, an E5, an E3, a few E410s all in stock at the moment. CEX seems to be the primary source, apart from Ffordes, of 4/3 stuff. It even has the 7-14 and the 35-100 at the moment.

I am genuinely surprised, though I'd personally rather buy from an established forum member of course

Re: Olympus Kit for sale from long standing original member :)

I just checked a few at Cex and I'd be very wary of some of their prices. They seem to mix 4/3s and micro 4/3s lenses without specifying the differences in their descriptions and their only E5 in stock is a C quality item at £330! Haven't checked Ffordes but I'd be happier using them as a comparison myself. Maybe your 11-22 and 70-300 are a bit high for the current market John, the cameras and other lenses I'd say were about right and the 14-54 is a bargain if there is any justice in the secondhand market.

Re: Olympus Kit for sale from long standing original member :)

CEX have been very good to me when descriptions haven't matched expectations. They also clarify if you phone the branch concerned. Camera gear isn't their speciality, which is perhaps why they are frequently cheaper than more specialist concerns, but also why they actually stock some 4/3 items these days.


They are very good on refunds, too :-)


Other suppliers of secondhand gear don't often buy 4/3 these days - you try getting a quote from MBP, Wex or LCE or ...



Anyway, good luck with the sales :-)

As interested as you may be, Kami, in the pro’s, con’s, merits or otherwise of selling / buying through the likes of MBP, Wex or LCE, I respectfully point out that my for sale thread, yes indeed, this one, is perhaps not (no… actually scrub those last few words, it’s not ‘perhaps not’, it should be ‘definitely not’) the most appropriate or relevant thread where one should embark on such discussions.

Not to worry though as I have been ever so thoughtful, by taking the time and liberty to create a totally new thread, dedicated purely for discussion on that very topic, which, if anyone wishes to contribute to it, can be found here.

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...076#post462076

I would suggest that further recommendations on the benefits [or not] of using MBP, Wex, LCE or indeed any other vendor - in preference to the For Sale section, and specifically my For Sale post, here on e-Group - would be far better discussed in detail within that specific thread.

Thanking you muchly.

NB: Said, ever so slightly… tongue-in-cheek.

Thanks, Musicman, and just in case anybody was derailed, my original post was

And I'll add that my E410 still gets an outing every now and then, as does my E1.

Indeed, Kami, I did include your original reply in the quoted section of my reply to you.

I figure a translation of your original reply might be... don’t buy any of these items until you have checked on Ffordes or CEX. So, cheers for that!

Personally, I’d have sent such a comment in a private message rather than post in a for sale thread and, to use your grammar, possibly derail any observers intent to purchase from me.

I have updated the initial post with the items that have sold. I will be revising the prices of the lenses soon, so if you are interested, do keep watching.

Re: Olympus Kit for sale from long standing original member :)

So folks, I have sold both my wonderful E-5, and the E-400 - which leaves me with some excellent 4/3 lenses to find good homes for.

I would much prefer an e-group member here to have one ore more of these bargains off me, rather than sell them to someone random on eBay or Gumtree etc.

With this in mind, I have significantly reduced the prices of the lenses I have remaining. Each lens comes complete with its original box, and I have owned them all from new.

I have also reduced the asking price of the E-3 if anyone is looking for a back-up body, or perhaps a great starter camera (don't forget there are plenty of lenses to choose from, too!!)

If you are interested, please do drop me a message on here, I'll be glad to hear from you.
