M.Zuiko 25mm F1.8 Black ... New, not removed from box

Hi,

I have this lens for sale which was part of a bundle with a Pen-F a few months ago.

UK Olympus dealer sourced, not registered with Olympus.

It is boxed in the retail box and I have opened the main flap and lifted the guarantee and Manual to confirm there is a lens in there! The lens has not been removed from the box.

Current retail with Cashback is 250.

I would hope that 199 including signed for delivery was a fair price?

Let me know if interested, I do have photos of a peek in the box.

Thanks

Chris

Hmm .. Brand new, never been out of the box, UK stock ...175 views and 0 interest ... not a roaring success!

I will reduce the price to 175 inc signed for delivery to see if that helps.

After that will try ebay.

Thank you for looking.

Chris

Chris, the number of "views" recorded by the forum software seems to include Non Members so not really a useful measure.

Good luck with the sale, it seems a good deal for someone

Hi John,

Thank you for pointing that out and I now appreciate that the 170 is not fully signed up members, maybe some are even 'bots'?

Still the 0 replies figure does suggest either the price is wildly wrong or the market for the 25mm 1.8 is fully satisfied at the moment or maybe both. Bit surprised at that.

Won't be taking it to heart so I'm not going to worry too much!

Thanks

Chris

Re: M.Zuiko 25mm F1.8 Black ... New, not removed from box

It is a great price and I want to get one for my Pen F to complement my 17mm, 45mm and 60mm (I had one years ago but sold it ). Unfortunately funds aren't available at the moment since I got the EM1.2.......... In a few months probably but I am sure there will be other examples cropping up when this time comes.
Good luck with the sale, it is a real good price!

FWIW I don't think there's anything wrong with your price - if I didn't already have 25mm covered I'd have made you an offer.


You might want to try other photography forums (mu-43.com, talkphotography or AVForums). It would be worth getting a quote from mpb, camera jungle etc. too.

eBay can perhaps get you the best price - I've read so many bad experiences I'm nervous of using it for selling anything of value.

But remember to factor in the fees that selling through eBay will cost you

Thanks to David and AMc on your thoughts on price and other potential sites.

eBay I have used to buy and sell in the past and it is true that the current fees and little extra features in your listing can end up costing you 10% or even a bit more so that really has to be factored.

Anyway the price was clearly attractive to the eye of member IainMacD and the lens is now on its way to Inverness.

Thank you all.

Chris
