Re: Looking for a PenF

Paul (pdk42) is thinking of selling some kit including a Pen-F:

https://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=51162

I don't think I have ever bought any bits from Paul but he is a well established member of the forum and I would not hesitate to do so if he was offering something I was after.

John

I think you really need black :

- The silver is painted, not metal. Scratches can reveal the base coat underneath. Not pretty!

- The black paint is more durable.

- Black is more exclusive (fewer sold).

- Silver lenses look great on black bodies!

This is actually my 2nd Pen F - the first was silver and I deliberately swapped to black after having held one in the hand.

You can't tempt me Paul no matter how hard you try!! I'm tempted by your 75mm in your clear out. If I don't find a silver pen f, I may be in touch over your lens. Cheers, Terry.

Re: Looking for a PenF

Thanks for the heads up Kevin. I've used the money I'd set aside on a 75mm and a low mileage e-p5, so will be a while before I get the funds for a pen-f now. That's the bad news. The good news is the 75mm is awesome.
