Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
I have one for sale, since I sold my E-5 it is of no use to me.


Boxed and in super condition.

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
Not quite sure what price you want.
Can you PM expected price including UK delivery.

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
I tried to send a PM but I got this message:


Benedict has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her.
Anyway, the price I am asking is 640GBP including UK delivery and a MARUMI 67mm DHG Protection filter.

Sorry about that zuiko-holic. It seems that following a previous problem with my login,I incorrectly reset some parameters the wrong way round.

I have PM'd you

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
Still haven't received it!

Some technical support is probably required.

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
I just cannot understand it. I checked my settingss are they are fine. That's 3 PM's I have sent to you

Anyway the nub of my answer was that I am looking at a price below 500 GBP.
The non SWD ones are going for around 350 GBP,so a 130-140 GBP uplift for the SWD one is probably in the right area and in my price range.

As I am only considering buying one of these lens and replacing my 70-300 I am not in a real hurry to buy one.

However my thanks for responding to my original post.

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
I got one off ebay 3 weeks ago for £460 incl postage and it's in great condition.

Benedict 10th March 2013 02:49 PM

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
Great news.

I missed one last night on Ebay as well - my bloody laptap froze up at the las t minute so I missed it :mad:

They are out there below 500 so I will just have to wait. However if anyone is contemplating selling theirs in the near future please let me know.

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
So how much is a new one in the UK? I paid around 500 for a new one soon after they started arriving in Canada about 5 years ago.

David M 10th March 2013 03:35 PM

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
I just checked current prices in Canada, it's gone up $250 CDN since I got mine. I paid $950 CDN when the exchange rate was $2 to 1. I had to pay goods and services tax and shipping but buying out of province meant I avoided 8% provincial sales tax.

David M 10th March 2013 04:00 PM

Re: 50-200 SWD Lens
781 plus taxes at current exchange rates for a new one in Canada. The taxes will vary by province but there would be 5% GST plus any provincial tax.
