E620, E300, grips, 17.5-45, 0.2x fisheye adapter (37mm dia)

Having a bit of a clear out, I guess.

I have an E300, maybe 5000 shutter count, body shows some signs of wear.
Body cap, 4GB SanDisk CF card, generic charger / battery, but no box.

I have an E620. Body shows signs of use, and shutter count maybe 40 000
(from a twin lens kit, but intend to keep the lenses to use with my E1). Has body cap, box and stuff, but no lenses. I'll include a CF memory card (probably 4GB SanDisk, as that's what I mostly have) and a battery / charger (battery may be generic).

I have grips for the E300 and the E620.
The grip for the 620 is Oly, but very annoying in that one of the slots never seems to give up its battery, whether Oly or not. So, I have used the grip mainly on a tripod for convenience of changing batteries, and not "in the field". Has a box. E300 grip doesn't.


I have one lens, the 17.5-45 in reasonable condition, with end cap and non-Oly lens cap plus UV filter on the whole time I've owned it.


I have one unopened Olympus Camedia 0.2x fisheye conversion lens with RT-1 tripod mount and the plastic adapters CLA-2 and CLA-3. The lens has a 37mm diameter thread - maybe "not a lot of people know that" - BUT the lens system protrudes behind the thread. So, it is not suitable for many 37mm dia. lenses. It IS if you put in a glassless filter between the lens and the fisheye converter, but this obviously affects the image circle. I bought two of these intending to try Kite Aerial Photography, and have used one, but not on a kite. (I got two 'cos I figured one would eventually end up damaged on the ground !).


The E300 / lens / grip was second hand, extremely low shutter count (from SRS, actually).

The E620 / grip were bought new, but the 620 has been well-used, if carefully !

The fisheye adapter is new.

I have also started a separate thread for my Sigma body / a couple of SD lenses.

I haven't put prices, sorry, as I'm a bit of a hoarder, but will un-hoard if the price is right, or the persuasion is persuasive enough ! Basically, make me a low-sensible offer for whatever you are interested in. Your main competitors are Ffordes and The Real Camera Company, and anybody that will come to Manchester and save me the hassle of packing / postage !


I'm in Manchester, and would be more than happy to meet in the vicinity to show off any of the gear beforehand - but please bear in mind, I don't have a car, so I'd cycle to the meeting place :-) Or post, RMSD, of course.

Edit: I've mostly converted to m4/3, hence the need to create a bit more shelf space - but not too much :-)

Re: E620, E300, grips, 17.5-45, 0.2x fisheye adapter (37mm dia)

OK :-)

The E620 is still available, as is the fisheye adapter.

The E300 is with a friend, and then going to be with another - trying to convert P&S users to 4/3 or m4/3. She has the 17.5-45 lens, too.

I will then lend friends the E1 I have OR the E620, depending on how much they have used the E300 and how carefully ! If the E620 has gone, they'll not be able to use it, will they ?

I now have a 70-300 4/3 so the 40-150 is available, though I see you have two.

I guess you aren't after the E300, but are after the E620, body only. No ?
(I quite enjoy guessing games :-D)

So, you could have the boxed kit if you wished, or else just the body.
Make me a reasonable offer :-)

You'll get the HLD-5 whatever, as I didn't pay too much for it and it's a nuisance to use. Great on a tripod, but only use the one battery compartment. Maybe I should fiddle with it to see if I can improve it.

(To be honest, though, I'd recommend saving the money towards purchase of a used EM-5, or a new EM-10, and a MMF-whichever adapter. My E620 is hardly used compared to my EM-5, which I got here off another member).

Yes it was the 620.

I would never be the 1st to mention prices though.....

I don't understand why the shyness over prices. If you want to sell why not quote a price.

Just to say I am not interested in the 620 now as I have purchased a 600 off here.
Thanks

Hey, I noticed that, ringneck - a good price, too. Enjoy your new toy - sounds like it is in better condition than my E620, so a double win :-)

I still have the 620. Any interest ?

{Apart from for those who have me as "Ignore", as I'm not in a hurry to sell - it's more a service to those who would like to 'buy or otherwise'}.

Oh, sorry, I ought to update on the list, too: the E300 and the 17.5-45 have gone to a needy friend - for the time being, at least. And they have a 4/3 40-150 (ii) from another friend who doesn't sell, or can be persuaded to part with underused gear for a good cause.

The E300 grip might be available for a "song" - unless I swap my 620 for my mate's 300 :-)
