FS: Olympus ED 50-200mm 1:2.8-3.5 SWD lens

I am going on a trip to Asia shortly and will be travelling light - to that end I have placed a Wanted add for an E-420 body - no offers have been forthcoming so it looks as though I will need to buy a new one.

To help finance the trip and the purchase of a 420 I have decided to temporarily sell my Olympus 50-200 SWD lens
...temporarily means that I will be buying another when I return - it's just too good a lens not to have one.

In a few days (once I get the time to do the pictures) I will be auctioning it on ebay - it will have a reserve price of £515 and postage of £15.

If anyone on the forum is interested in this lens please contact me asap - once it is listed on ebay I will be letting the auction run.

I will sell it now for £510 which will include fully insured delivery.


The lens was purchased new from the London Camera Exchange in January and is mint condition - it will be suppied with everything it came with when new and in its original box.

Eyespy, I might be your saviour!

There is a secondhand E420 up for sale on the UKPSG, doesn't appear to have been sold yet. You might want to take a look.

NB - Just to point out to folks:

The UKPSG is a closed system, rather than an open one; meaning you have to register not only to participate in any of the discussions, but also before you are allowed to even see & have visibility of any of the content.

I mention this as when/if you click on the link you will have to register before you get to see anything.

No problem Simon, but some people are not fans of closed systems and the seller might do well to post something he is wanting to sell - somewhere where he/she can get maximum visibility. Personally, I don't understand quite why something is posted for sale on a site that has restricted access, and thus limited exposure.

Glad you've mentioned he could advertise here too. Thanks.

That was me ;-) And I have offered it to the OP here.

But you should not be confused - what I did only seems odd because you assume that someone selling something is just trying to get as much money as possible as quickly as possible. Whereas I decided that I would be happy to sell it to a UKPSG member but if none wanted it, I might hang on to it anyway.

Cheers,

Tom

Have I missed something, or is the 50-200SWD still for sale?
Best wishes,
Bryan

I put my 70-300mm on this site as I may have been able to have taken it to an event and sold it there, as it happened, it didn't go so it is still up for grabs on here

Sorry b.spooner - the lens has been sold - i'm afraid the thread sort of got hi-jacked with talk about E-420's and 70-300's
