Pen-F, near mint

I like my Pen-F. I've hugged it and petted it and called it George, but it has an embarrassingly low shutter count of 377 while in the same time my E-M1 has taken around 5000.


I'm offering it to the Forum first, boxed, near mint with all the gubbins. In stead of eBay-Paypal taking the fees, I'll donate 10% to the Forum.


650 plus your choice of delivery cost by bank transfer or in cash if you want to meet within, say, 50 miles of Coalville.


Unless anyone can talk me out of it - I'm already starting to regret this

Re: Pen-F, near mint

Don't do it . The Pen F is a thing of beauty................as long as you don't add the grip (just sell that on its own!). I have a third party grip but I only use it for the larger m43rds lenses that I own, not the small primes.

Re: Pen-F, near mint

I agree with Dave. The Pen-F has a great "gestaldt" compared to the E-M1.

Well, that put it simply for me! Thanks, Steve.

I never realised how much the early E-Ps aped the original Pens.

Yes indeed, the EPs and the digi Pen F too.
The front knob is the shutter speed / ASA selection, on the digi it's a filter effects selector, I think.

Re: Pen-F, near mint

Taking another look at the other offers on thet auction site it appears that I might have overpriced it a little.

New offer: 599 to include RMSD. The Forum contribution still stands.
