SOLD Olympus 14-35 F2 SHG ..... superb lens !

As you may have already read I have just purchased an E-M5 with a couple of primes and as stunning as this lens is I know it is not going to see the use it should get so reluctantly I have decided to sell it.

It has had little use, is in lovely condition and is boxed with hood,caps,pouch and papers.

No point going on about how sharp it is as surely just about everyone must know of this lenses reputation.

Unmarked optics, no fungus, SWD fast and quiet.

14-35 does not often come up for sale so here is your chance to get one, and a super example at that. Ffordes had one about six months ago .... they were asking 1399 and it had sold within two weeks so must have realised that price or very close to it.

OK, what do I want ? Well the good news for a prospective buyer is I will be happy with less than that but naturally I would like to also realise as much as possible.

1,100 woud be nice, but I am prepared to consider "sensible" offers. First to offer 1,100 secures immediately and I will include a very nice 77mm UV Hoya Digital pro1 filter. Otherwise "PM" me with an offer for my consideration.

I have bought and sold several items via this forum and you can also check me out on ebay, my ebay name is "maxyoko" . I also own and run a hardware store and my family have been in business since 1872 so you can have confidence in me ( take a look at my website ..... www.bakersdiy.com and new under development one at www.bakersdiy.co.uk )

Payment preferred via bank transfer but I will accept a check subject to the normal "clearing" times.

Thanks for looking and feel free to ask any questions

Kind regards Simon

Hmm, wish I hadn't recently had to bail out my daughter's overdraft!

Hi Jim,

I sort of know where you are coming from, but it's not an overdraft in my instance .... hopefully my daughter is off to 'Uni' in September. I think I had better complete my M4/3 outfit now while I still have the cash to do so.

Mind you she/I are luckier than our English counterparts for the Welsh Assembly will pay 5.5k a year which means she will only be liable for the remaining 3.5k plus living expenses which seems to average about 110 a week for "Hall of Residence" accommodation.

Anyway ... back on topic, regardless of your current predicament keep on eye on this sale as "you never know" what is around the corner

Kind regards Simon

Lens arrived today - speedy delivery, well packed, seems in great condition, not had any chance to take it out, yet, but don't doubt its as advertised, if not more so.

Thanks for making that hole in my pocket as painless as possible Simon!

Hi Mark,

Glad it has arrived safely, it's a stunning performer and I am sure when you view the first images you capture with it you will have your socks blown off !

Kind regards Simon
