Olympus Pro lenses and E-510 for sale

Just a quick heads up. After much deliberation (and over some period of time) I have decided to sell all my Olympus gear.
Sadly I cannot justify running two similar systems for what is for me a hobby. The following are links to my gear on eBay:-

ED 12-60 SWD
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=170329983657

ED 50-200 SWD
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=170329986830

ED 50 f/2 Macro
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=170329980769

E-510 body and twin lens kit
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=170329997279

I think chas-mac is politely trying to say that at best your post is an example of bad manners by posting links to Ebay not even having offered the items for sale on the forum. At worst it's blatant spamming. Such a post would be pulled on many if not all the forums I am involved in. Pehaps the forum policy is on your side with this but it still don't seem like good forum etiqutte to me.

Re: Olympus Pro lenses and E-510 for sale

Hi Paul,
OK I do see your point, in which case if I have offended anybody I do apologise
My intention was genuinely nothing more than to make other UK Oly users who were perhaps looking for any these Pro lenses or a E-510 kit aware that I am selling my gear, nothing more.
Again sorry if I have overstepped the mark here and if the moderators want to remove my post I understand.
Kind regards
Huw

Naah, we won't remove your post, even though it may have been better to advertise on here prior to advertising on eBay, it was very nice of you to apologise.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: Olympus Pro lenses and E-510 for sale

I tend to offer items on this forum at average recent ebay price - 10% or so. The 10% represents ebay charges and PayPal commission and life is easier without having to deal with zero feedback non english speaking German (or Hong Kong) bidders. Having said that, I have sold to both the aforementioned recently without a hitch so you can't prejudge. If no sale in a day or so then to ebay. some you win, some you lose.

Anyway, good luck with auctions. I may even put in a bid.

Re: Olympus Pro lenses and E-510 for sale

Thanks for your interest Mappy.
My other system is Pentax, I have a K20D with Grip, DA*16-50 the new DA*60-250 and the FA 50 f/1.4 prime.
My main motivation is all weather kit as I do a fair amount of walking / hiking. Late last year I was already to upgrade to an E-30 had it been dust and splash proof, sadly not to be. And as I'm not a huge fan of the E-3 handling (all the buttons and their position) I thought I would give the Pentax K20D a go, found that I liked it a great deal, extremely nice handling, top build and image quality (good dynamic range and high ISO performance) together with 14.6 Megapixel resolution. Plus it has the same robust weather proofing as an E-3 and so do the DA* lenses that I have.
However overall the DA* 16-50 is not quite as good as my ED 12-60 SWD (which is a fantastic lens) but it's sweet spot is pretty much as good (f/5.6 to f/13).
I was.... still am extremely happy with my Olympus gear but in the end I found I was using my Pentax gear more often hence the reluctant sale

Kind regards
Huw
