Olympus 50mm F2 Macro 4/3rds

Legendary lens, the 4/3rds one. Excellent, most would say mint or near mint. Lens hood has light marks. Optics superb.

Will see if I can get some pics on Imgur though prob won't be until tomorrow.

Focuses fairly fast on an original E-M1 but I use manual for macro quite a lot.

165 inc post or pick up from Dunmow area with cash?

Mal.

Re: Olympus 50mm F2 Macro 4/3rds

I would think that that's a very good price for a lens that when DPreview tested it, that:

"Certainly in terms of the studio results, it's the nearest we've yet found to a technically perfect lens"

It's my goto lens for macro, often used with the matched x2TC.

It's one of the few 4/3s lenses I kept as Harold said it's a great macro lens and a real bargain at that price. I'm suprised no one has snapped it up yet.

Re: Olympus 50mm F2 Macro 4/3rds

I normally use my Sony camera for macro photography, but if I lived in the UK I would be very tempted by that price. I gather 50MM on MFT is equivalent to 100mm on full frame, but the SEL-90M28G was a lot more expensive!
