Lenses and stuff for sale

I've decided that I'm gonna jump ship over to Pentax fit land so there's a pile of lenses and occasional odd and end for sale. The list is as follows;

Olympus ZD 11-22mm 450
Oly ZD 40-150mm (old, slightly faster larger one) 110
Oly ZD 35mm macro 100
Sigma 135-400mm APO (4/3 fit obv) 350
Oly fl-36 flash + Stofen diffuser + flcb05 cable 150
Olympus P-S100 dye sub photo printer 50

All the lenses are in pretty much as new condition and none have had even remotely heavy use. The Sigma is less than a year old and has had very light use. The lenses all have hoods (except the 35mm), manuals and all original packaging, except perhaps the odd plastic bag gone missing somewhere. The 11-22mm and fl-36 flash both have soft tie up cases and the Sigma has a rather substantial padded zip up case with strap. The photo printer is unused, I've had it out of its box once and got the manual out of its packet but thats it.

I may also be offering an E500 SE kit (thats the one with the cheaper 17.5-45mm lens) with added charger and two original Oly rechargable batteries. (SE kits don't normally come with these, just a plastic battery holder and any brand new ones you see will be thus equipped). I'm toying with keeping it as a back up but if anyone wants to make me an offer...

Right, think thats it, get in touch via pm if you're interested.

Note; above doesn't include postage, I thought I'd work it out as and when cos some may want special delivery, you might want more than one of the items etc.

Re: Lenses and stuff for sale

That's a big decision based on the level of kit you have for sale.

As an Ex happy Pentax film camera user who's switched I would be interested in the reasons for this decision as I still have a lot of old film kit. As we're not a troll den I hope that your thinking will help me decide what to do with that kit

I previously explained my reasons for coming this way in a thread that I started a while ago

Re: Lenses and stuff for sale

Its certainly not based on any disillusion with Olympus I can tell you, nor is it really an image quality question particularly.

Its simply that I won a Samsung GX-10 a couple of months back and when all is said and done it is a more advanced body than the E500 which is hardly a surprise really seeing as it was always a price point above and a couple of years more recent. It is better at high ISO noise but nothing like the huge gulf that an awful lot of reviews will have you believe.

Fact is I'm not using the Sigma in particular anything like as much as I thought I would so that would prob be for the chop anyway. I considered a number of other options including selling everything and getting an E3 but it seemed an awful lot of work and I'd probably only just scrape together enough to get the body and the 14-54. I wouldn't anticipate making much from selling the GX-10.

So I decided that selling the lenses I'd got and buying fewer, higher quality faster lenses for the Samsung was prob the best way to go taking everything into account. If I actually had any money to top up my sale proceeds the E3 option would have prob got more consideration but I'm brassic atm. And sometimes a change is good for the soul, I can always come back.

If you like let us know what Pentax fit lenses you've got and we might be able to come to a deal.

I will miss my 11-22mm though

Re: Lenses and stuff for sale

It may be your prices are too high. You'd be lucky to get much more than 80 for the 40-150mm on eBay, for example. I thought I'd done well to sell mine at 82.
