E5, lenses etc

I think I am (with great sadness) going to bite the bullet and move on. I have the following for sale, all in great condition.

E5 shutter count just under 16,000 bought from here, no faults super condition just works! There is a an Oly battery and a couple of third part spares that work fine. £725 + rmsd reduced £650

50-200 non swd great condition soft pouch case inc. £350 + rmsd reduced £310

12-60 swd £350 +rmsd reduced £320

I will not sell the above lenses unless the E5 goes.

50mm F2 Macro (prob my sharpest lens) £235 +rmsd

9-18mm £220 +rmsd

Metz 50 Af with stofen diffuser hardly used, £80 + rmsd

HLD 5 grip for E620 £15 + del

All lenses have both caps, some have a pouch, will have to dig them out. Most stuff boxed, if not then will be well packed.

E420 body about 3000 shutter count £100 + rmsd reduced £80

Re: E5, lenses etc

Sponner in what direction are you moving? is it Nikon as you hinted earlier? Just wondered why you weren't going to try the EM1 in one of the demo sessions that are being organised round the country over the next few weeks before making a change?

Re: E5, lenses etc

I'm going to consolidate into a Nikon user. For the price of the new body I can get a D7000 and some decent glass that will share across two bodies. I am sure the new body will be great but it makes no sense for me given the price.

Re: E5, lenses etc

I can vouch for the 9-18mm 4/3 lens. I use it on the E-M5 with the adapter and I find it nice and sharp. I'm sure I read somewhere that the 4/3 version of the lens is optically very slightly better than the m4/3 version...

Whatever, it's on my recommended list :-)

The Four Thirds 9-18 is another really ambitious optical design with a massive aspherical front element. It's a remarkable lens given the price.

Re: E5, lenses etc

Yes, unfortunately, no matter how good the E-M1 is, while it may represent great value to those who can afford it, that's no good if you can't justify the cost. Olympus desperately needs to get an E-M1 'Lite' out asap.

Now the D7100 is out the D7000 is being discounted heavily, so I fully recognise your point of view.

All we can hope is that you may be tempted back after your Nikon period - you wouldn't be the first by any mean

Don't be a stranger though!

That's good to hear and I fully understand your reasons for switching your main system, hope all goes well for you - let us know!

It did cross my mind that you might be going with Nikon so that you could sell some more cleaning cloths on their forum!

Re: E5, lenses etc

I've reduced some prices after a bit of research, They are now similar to part ex prices and, I believe, represent good value.

Re: E5, lenses etc

No chevvy but I would let the 12-60 go anyway.

I love my D800 for the shorter end but cannot afford to get anywhere near the E5 and 50-200 for the long end (as the D800 is full frame that is 100-400 equivalent), hence I am wavering.

I can use primes on the D800 and crop for 12-60 anyway.
