Dealer Sale - 90-250mm 2750
 
Another interesting item from my local dealer, Harrison Cameras of Sheffield.

You don't see these crop up terribly often second hand, particularly with 12 months warranty.
Lots of dosh I know, but 4500 new from Ffordes

Strange, it doesn't appear to come with a sherpa to carry it either!

Would be careful about "investing" in a lens like this. Very difficult to sell later on, values dropping like a rock. A recent auction on USA ebay sold one for only $1990 or around £1200. Some time ago a member here sold his on ebay, and it only got 1 bid, around £1500.

I can only second this. Used to own one when I was still shooting with an E-3. It's an incredible lens though and pairs well with a TC. I sold it in time and switched to m4/3 for everyday stuff and Nikon (shame, shame) for long-lens work.

It's gone now anyway, hopefully to a good home; over the border maybe?.
I hope it's not too heavy to make it over Offa's Dyke.:rolleyes:

100.00 off as good-will for the "double-selling" of the EC14 too :)

I'm not concerned about resale value, I very foolishly sold the previous one I had and do not intend to make the same mistake twice ;)

Thank you for the "heads-up" Bill .... truly, I did not expect to see another S/H one and though I often look at H.C. site I have not done so lately so may well have missed this, I owe you a beer *chr

Right, must calm down now, spending that is - not excitement ;)

Please to be of assistance, both to a member of this fine forum, and also to a decent dealer.
Don't forget to say who put you on to it, they might owe me a beer too, and they're closer.*chr

Given the 90-250mm is relatively small it should make a nice combo with a m4/3 body.
