Zuiko Digital 300mm f2.8

Gidday all.

New user to the forum, but been on "fourthirdsphoto.com" for 4 years with 20+ feedback. I am selling my ED300/2.8 with approx 80 thousand clicks taken with it Truly an amazing lens, and very sad to sell it. Comes with all original accessories, box, and camo lens coat!

Price is 3150 GBP SHIPPED to the UK via Purolator Express postage.

Since I do not have enough posts, I cannot post images or links. If you send me your email, I will gladly send you pictures of the lens.

Thanks for looking,

Charles

As I've said before, I did not come here to offend, but to sell some great gear.

Here are the images of the lems:







And again, some images taken with it on the E5 and E510

Re: Zuiko Digital 300mm f2.8

I think we should make it a condition of all sellers that they post stunning shots like these

With such great results I do naturally wonder why you are switching!

Great pictures.

That's not a lens ... that's a tree with glass in the middle.

Superb set of photos from a talented photographer with a sublime lens.
I too wish I could justify the purchase but sadly not at the present time

Re: Zuiko Digital 300mm f2.8

I would love to buy this - BUT the UK Customs tax on this would be nearly 1,000 and then what if it gets damaged on the long journey ? and IOWA I dont KNOW you at all?

Yes, that's a good point - the VAT alone will be 20% on top of the asking price in the UK, unless you're VAT-registered of course.

Ian, I have bought quite a few USA or Canada items and Customs add the value and the Post & Insurance and charge, I think it was 37% on the total ! and they have got "sharp" on "GIFT" and look at the items and can re value !

Also Import Duty will be 6.7% plus there may be a handling fee when it reaches the UK. And of course insurance would be a good idea. (These were all the costs to consider when I purchased from Cameta America).

Good Point ! I also got a huge shock on one item from Canada as their post/insurance costs were huge ! and I usually pay by VISA Barclaycard so its insured by that

Re: Zuiko Digital 300mm f2.8

Hey thanks everyone for the compliments on the images. The reason for switching is simple. More reach and better IQ. Those two factors, of course, are going to cost me a lot of money!

I wasn't aware that VAT & Taxes were so significant. I know when I purchase anything internationally, I have to pay 13% in taxes alone, and some times more! Still, it is more economical to purchase equipment this way then to purchase in Canada!!
