Re: Olympus 12-40 mint as new

If you sell it on ebay at this asking price and payment is by paypal, you will incur total costs from ebay and paypal of about 20%. You will end up with about 380. So bearing in mind that HDEWCameras are selling the lens new with 3 year warranty for just 519, might it be more sensible here to reduce the price by the ebay & paypal costs? That would make your sale much more attractive.

I agree with Kenny and if you could reduce the price by 100 I would be interested ?

Are HDEW reliable? They often seem to have unfeasibly competitive process. Presumably imports?

Yes and yes, but they are reliable and offer excellent cover in the event of a malfunction.

I have bought two Oly bodies and two lenses from them and I used their 3 year warranty for the usual M1 rear wheel
failure. I have no problem at all with HDEW. In fact because of silly high prices being asked here for used items with no warranty I am about to buy a 12-40 from them. To pay the kind of asking price for this used lens is just idiotic. Bear in mind that genuine Olympus warranty is not transferable.

I believe the UK warranty is transferrable. I'm not trying to just argue, this is an important point we should get clarified on this forum. It certainly used to be transferrable - all you needed was the warranty card and proof of purchase - so has something changed? Ian's post of 5 years ago here

I bought my 300/4 from HDEW and when it developed a problem they were very quick to sort it out. Certainly a shop worth considering.

Re: Olympus 12-40 mint as new

A very good point about the warranty John, hope Ian is around to comment.

Kenny there is little point in criticising buyers and sellers for the prices they charge it is a very individual matter what people feel goods are worth. Every buyer wants to maximise his/her return and every seller wants a bargain.

I accept the smack on the wrist. You are correct of course, I just thought this case was a bit extreme. But the lens is sold so all's well etc.
