Totally mint/as new ZD 12-60mm SWD 2.8-4 Olympus 4/3 lens boxed.
 
My spare 12-60 is for sale, I have two, so this one is never being used. It is absolutely factory fresh and used for 530 shots ONLY. The mount fitting and rubber waterproof seal are fresh and tight, just like a brand new lens. Filter fitted from new- the front element has never even been cleaned. (Just took filter off now) filter is not included in the sale. Tested on both my E-3 and OMD with MMF-1 and works flawlessly with both. SWD motor silent, and the images are absolutely razor sharp at any FL.

Box, lens, paperwork, and original mint front and rear olympus caps only. Similar lenses have sold for 450+ and more on auction sites, I am asking 310 plus delivery- by bank transfer, paypal gift, cheque, and of course cash on collection.

Pics soon but it really is brand new condition.

Don't forget:

When this lens was reviewed in 2008 by dpreview, they said:

"Indeed the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 SWD is quite simply a superb lens, which can lay claim to being one of the very best standard zooms currently available."

Ah dont worry timboo :) It always happens :) Nice sig :D

BTW this has got to be my favourite standard zoom lens of all time, and I use Nikon 2.8 glass daily (work).

It's quite a lens to read about. Users are saying it gives a lot of primes a run for their money, saying it's better than the Pana 12-35 and close to the 12-40...

Its a lot better than the 12-35 and IMO as good as 12-40. Sharper than a lot of 2.8 primes. The new user will be getting a bargain :) Still up for grabs folks.

I'm sure it's a great lens, but trying to say there's a meaningful difference in IQ between the 12-35 and 12-40 is nonsense. So, the 12-60 can't be "a lot better" than the 12-35 and yet "as good as" the 12-40. I think in fact that all three are to all intents and purposes as good as each other. The 12-60 wins in reach, but it's bigger and only focuses well on 4/3 bodies or the E-M1.

The quality of the 12-35 is as good, but it focus hunts on the few Oly bodies I tried, whereas the 12-40 was spot on, as is the 12-60 (considering MMF-1)

I've never had any focus problems with the 12-35, lightning fast and accurate. I've had it since soon after it came out, and with the 35-100, make a brilliant general purpose pair that are much smaller than the Oly pair. Both keep surprising me with their sharpness. On Oly bodies since the E-M1, the slight CA on the 12-35 is sorted by the in-body correction for the JPGs. You lose 5mm at the long end to the 40-150 f2.8, but I find the 75-300 II covers the longer end of the range pretty well.
