4/3 14-54 Mk II

I got this from niranhopper in August as a stopgap whilst I mulled over the Pany 12-35 or Oly 12-40.

I am now fully mulled and am sticking with the Panny, so I'm offering the excellent 14-54 for what I paid for it, 185 incl RMSD.

The lens is unboxed, optically perfect and in fine condition, with just a few scratches on the lens hood and an aftermarket lens cap.

This is a cracking buy for someone wanting a top quality mid range zoom on their M4/3 body for a bargain price. It focuses pretty well on my E-M5.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

I've been using my 14-54 MkII today, I would second what jdal has to say. Optically very, very good, and focus speed is more than acceptable on the E-M5.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Another bump to see if anyone wants this brilliant lens.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Just to add that it's a great lens especially at this price - I have one on my E-1 which I also use on m43 - unlike the original version, this one focuses OK even on the m43 bodies so it's a very cost-effective fast lens. Someone should buy it!

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Cheers Jon. I agree. I'm only selling this because I have the Panny 12-35. I actually reckon it's optically at least as good as that lens and I use it a fair bit for landscapes. It's just that my MMF-3 tends to sit on my 7-14 so lens changing can be a bit of a pain.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Well, I find this quite depressing, I too have one for sale. Unlike you I paid £300, but it is an absolute stunning, flawless lens in pristine condition, not a single mark anywhere.
I couldn't tempt you could I jdal? Make excellent book ends, a conversation stopper, guaranteed.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Do you think I can get an adapter so I can mount yours on front of mine. Would it become a 28-108? Would it be twice as good maybe.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Good idea! What would the resulting image look like if you attached the lenses together such that the front elements are facing each other

Don't bother theorising, just get it bought off me

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

That's a waste of money. It'd be cheaper if you bought mine.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

The monthly bump to try and shift this corker of a lens. I'm keen to reduce bulk and am lusting after the new 7-14mm, so need to start to build up funds.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

I put one up for sale three days ago, (see post below) I pitched mine at £170, but no replies so far. Ffordes have several Mk 1's for sale at £159-£189 but no Mark II's, For use on m4/3 the Mk II is definitely better (I have had both) so I think our prices here are reasonable.

Error in price edited.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Well I don't want to spoil jdal's pitch, but I also have one of these for sale. So if you miss out here, let me know and I can sort you out.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

Well it looks like I'm expecting too much here. Hard to gauge price off bnay since none seem to have been sold recently. I've had a bit of a brainwave, so I'm closing this thread and starting a new one to offer my MMF-3 with the lens.

Re: 4/3 14-54 Mk II

This got me thinking, and I have now withdrawn mine. I have decided to send all of my outstanding 4/3 lenses to Ffordes.
