EP5, 14-42, VF4, 45/1.8 and Benbow tripod

Iím rationalising my MFT gear and have the following for sale.

EP5 and 14-42/3.5-5.6 IIR lens Black. Shutter count under 3,300. I bought this as a backup for the OMDs (because it shares the same battery) and it served me well on a couple of occasions when the EM1 was on holiday in Portugal. You can see some of the results with the 40-150/2.8 in my February postings about the Kruger. Body and lens are in pristine condition and thereís even the hot shoe cover. In the original box with charger, battery, cables, disk etc. £425 inc RMSD

VF-4 Black. I bought this for use with the EP5 as I prefer a viewfinder for most purposes and the camera becomes almost the equivalent of an OMD for handling. Itís in pristine condition in its original box. £115 inc RMSD or £105 if bought with the EP5.

45/1.8 lens Silver. Unboxed but will be well packed. It has seen little use and is in pristine condition with front and rear caps. Itís reckoned by many on the forum to be one of the best value for money MFT primes but is redundant as I now have the 12-40 and 40-150. £135 inc RMSD.

Benbow Mk 1 tripod This is the tripod made famous by Heather Angel for macro and wildlife work. Itís in good working order but there are a few paint chips and odd blemishes which do not affect the way it works. £35 inc RM 2nd class.

PM sent re tripod. However Sponer should get first chance as he expressed a possible interest first. If he does not want it I will take it please.

There is no head with the tripod. In accordance with Grump Hec's post I shall offer it to Sponner if he still wishes to take it.

Sponner - have you decided whether you want the Benbo please? If not I'll let it go to Grumpy Hec.

VF-4 arrived safe and well, boxed, and as pristine as advertised. Thanks David.

P.S. It looks a little silly (or is that a great silly) on my E-PM2 but that's my fault - to get the camera pocketable it has to be as modular as I can make it.

Re: EP5, 14-42, VF4, 45/1.8 and Benbow tripod

Tripod received this afternoon.

A magnificent piece of almost eccentric engineering. Very suited to the sort of images I do a lot these days and for shorter walks where weight is not too much of an issue I may use it for landscapes as initial impressions suggest its a sturdy beast.

So far its had me in a headlock once but I won on submissions.

cheers

Hec

Hec, if you don't extend the centre column a Benbo is capable of supporting a fast 600mm or a 5x4 for landscapes.
