Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens

I bought this from HDEW in May 2016 so it still has warranty remaining up till May 2019 which I would honour.
There is a tiny mark on the focus ring, no idea how that got there, and the lens cap and hood went west ages ago which have been replaced.
The reason for sale is that I've almost completely switched to Sony (ouch!).







showing the "ding"





comes in a white box.

I'm asking £365 inc.PP

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens

Hi, not really sure how trading works on this site but was directed here by a member on another forum I frequent. Having just bought an EM5 MKII Im looking to get myself a 12-40 and may be interested in yours.

Just a couple of questions, is there much dust in the lens, and are there any marks on the glass. Im not concerned about the mark on the focus ring so long the focus is fine and the zoom is smooth.

Hope I've gone about this the right way.

I've just checked the lens with a small torch and I can find no visible dust.
Both the focus ring and the zoom ring are functioning perfectly.
You've gone about this in the right way. Thanks for your enquiry.
Edit: I've just seen your posts on TP, I'm Footman on there, terrible forum name, wish I hadn't chosen it!

Excellent, if you come to a decision just say so on here. I like to use buying/selling the same way as on TP, all dealing done openly in the thread with personal details done in private conversation.

OK, I'm happy with the price, I'm assuming it includes RMSD?

It has been brought to my attention (and quite rightly) that I am in error regarding the warranty on the lens. The lens has a 1 year warranty and not 3 years which is given to bodies only.
I have communicated this to the buyer and he is perfectly happy.
Payment has been received and will give the lens a final test and I intend to post today.

As discussed on the phone this morning, no problems regarding the warranty.

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens

You have to be very unlucky for something to go wrong.....

Dust etc is the main possible problem, depends on how it has been kept, and used. Neither of which are covered by a warranty I am guessing. I bought mine from E Finity well over a year ago.

Dim Problem as we say in Wales...………..

(dim=no for the unwashed)
