SOLD Panasonic Leica 15mm f1.7 DG Summilux H-X015E-S REDUCED

This is a cracking m4/3 street photography lens, and I know several other forum members like it as well.

Panny 15 1 by drmarkf, on Flickr

I'm only selling because I'm about to sell my silver E-M5ii. I've managed to track down a decent-condition second-hand PL 15mm f1.7 in black, and I'm now going to be using this on my black E-Mi and ii bodies.

It's tiny, and sharper than the Olympus 17 f1.8 (although you need to pixel-peep to see that), and I like the slightly wider perspective.

The lens was released as the high-quality prime for the Panasonic GM1 and GM5, and it's so small that it allows those tiny bodies to sit horizontally on a flat surface, and it doesn't get in the way if you want to mount them on a tripod. The aperture ring is very useful on the GM1 and 5, but it doesn't work on Olympus bodies. It has very fast internal focusing and produces decent bokeh.

The lens is in mint condition as the images show, and the package is complete, with box, unopened paperwork, the trim ring, hood, cap and rubber plug cap for use with the hood. Anything that might look like an external mark on glass or body in the images is just dust and there's just the faintest signs of use on the bayonet.

Some reviews:
https://www.cameralabs.com/panasonic...m_f1-7_h-x015/
http://www.thephoblographer.com/2014...o-four-thirds/

The cheapest I can find new today from a UK bricks-and-mortar supplier is 419.99, and completed listings on eBay in various alleged condition range from 320 - 375 + postage.

285 (was 299) by bank transfer to include RMSD to UK Mainland.

As the advert says, a perfect street lens amongst other things. It's my most used lens and if I was to keep just one, this would be it. I can imagine it would look great on the EM5 mk2 also advertised.

I'm now back from the Hebrides, so a bump for this.
I believe it to be keenly priced for a boxed and mint example with a full set of bits, but I'm happy to be convinced otherwise!
