Whoa .... can 4/3 get even more of a bargain ?

I've just spotted these two 'bargains' ..... I thought original 4/3 had reached its floor, obviously I was wrong as these as seriously good buys. God knows what the seller got for them, both 5* condition

50-200 SWD ......... https://www.lcegroup.co.uk/Used/Olym...WD_171253.html

7-14 SHG ........ https://www.lcegroup.co.uk/Used/Olym...L-_171252.html

4/3rds lenses do still have a valid life especially with the extended focussing method on the Em1 MkII, where as the old 4/3rds bodies appear to be classed as boat anchors.

Exactly, so this pricing is even more surprising.

Even the 'pro' bodies weren't heavy enough for a door stop so they wouldn't make very good boat anchors. Most of the glass was far to good for paperweights, besides there are much better options if you want an optical paperweight.

Out of interest was this the 50-200 SWD from Norwich at 280?

I bought one last week and noticed that they had another still available, though it looks like it has since sold. It seems to be in good condition, though I haven't had a chance to get out and use it in anger yet

Re: Whoa .... can 4/3 get even more of a bargain ?

Most of the pictures in my A Walk round Ernesto's Gallery thread were taken with the 7-14mm 4/3rds lens. The 7-14 lens is great treasure just about impossible to justify buying let alone two so I will use the OM1 MkII to use it.
