50-200 ED (non-SWD)

I'm thinking of selling my 50-200 as a prelude to getting either the 40-150 + TC or the 300/4 (if I can afford it!).

So - it's in excellent condition - optics are perfect and the body is in great condition. There are a few scuffs on the hood, but the lens body itself is almost pristine. It comes with the tripod foot and case, but I don't have the original box. It's the ED (non-SWD) version. This means that focus is a little slower and noisier than the SWD, but some say that in fact its IQ is a little better than the later SWD version.

Price wise - I'm not sure what they go for these days. eBay prices are all over the place - I even saw one listed for 1300 I guess I'd be happy with 250 incl RMSD. Let me know if you're interested.

I'll post up some pics later.

Great lens. It's perfect for butterflies, especially with the 1.4 converter. I can't imagine ever parting with mine.

Re: 50-200 ED (non-SWD)

After some dithering about this sale, I've decided I'm definitely going to sell the lens! So, here are a few pictures. I've also got the 1.4TC and the Panasonic 4/3 to m43 adapter.

50-200- The lens is in excellent condition. The body is practically blemish-free. The optics are completely clear with no scratches. The mount has some very minor wear, but it attaches without any play at all. The hood has some minor scuffs. Operationally the lens is fine and delivers great images. It comes with the tripod mount and a carry case. The case is in very good condition with no tears or significant marks. Unboxed, but will be securely packed.






250 inc postage

1.4 TC - Pretty much pristine. No marks to be seen. Supplied with carry pouch. Unboxed but securely packed.





100 inc postage

4/3 to m43 adapter - This is the Panasonic version of the MMF-2. It's metal construction but not weather sealed. In excellent condition.



50 inc postage
