Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake

Anyone got one of these kit lenses they are looking to sell? They go for as low as 100-120 on here and eBay - please let me know condition and price including postage. Thanks.

Re: Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake

I've one I'd part with. Has an automatic lens cap with it. 150 posted?

Not had much use because I got the 12-40 shortly after.

Can take pictures this evening if you are interested?

Re: Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake

Hi, more than I was looking to pay to be honest. I appreciate the automatic lens cap has value but I'll be mostly using this for underwater photography so wouldn't keep it on in the housing anyway (too much risk you get to 30m and it doesn't open!!).

What price for just the lens including postage? Or lowest you'd go if you want to sell the whole lot given new auto lens caps go for 30. Pics would be good - was it a kit lens or boxed separately?

Re: Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake

You've come to THE place in the UK, possibly the world to discuss and trade 4/3 and u4/3 equipment so you obviously value the people on here's opinion or honesty or that they are a group of enthusiasts that look after their kit. That rules out the 'dead on arrival' or 'not as described' problems which I believe has value in itself.

The price is firm. Its going to cost 7.25 to post, plus some packaging, 30 for the cap and 110-120 for the lens I feel is fair. That is based on your evaluation and Royal Mail next day delivery, with insurance.

The cap is of no value to me without the lens and I'd rather sell them together.

It was purchased 5/11/14 from American Amazon whilst my brother was in the States as a kit, bundled with my EM10.

The original lens cap will be in the box which is at my parents' house - this won't be posted in with the lens but can be sent to you if you want it.

Photos of the lens are here

I've included shots of the blemishes on the lens - they are tiny and in no way affect the lens, which is in full working order and optically clear

* one on the lens mount, presumably scratched against the body whilst mounting
* two on the front element cover from having the auto lens cap fitted
* one on the front of the auto lens cap bezel

Re: Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake

Whilst I'm not keen to pay extra for a lens cap that is of little value to me too, you are right, I'd rather buy off of someone here for the reasons youve outlined and no one is selling one on its own right now so let's go ahead. Let me know how you want to proceed re payment and swapping contact details. Don't worry about the lens cap box. Thanks for taking the photos so quickly - all looks good and looking forward to completing things with you!

Re: Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake

No problem with the photos - I'd rather it was honest and upfront right from the get go.

I'm presuming you don't have enough posts to send private messages yet, so if you go onto my profile and 'contact me', send me an email with your details and I'll reply with everything you need to know

No problem, shouldn't be too difficult!

The lens is packed and I'll take it to work with me, but don't break yourself trying overnight!
